Understanding the many copyright issues related to the use of songs and video is complicated. Moreover, the law is confusing.
For churches, schools or organizations, a seemingly honest error or omission can be both embarrassing, time-consuming and costly. At the same time, the law seeks fairness and protection for all parties.
CCLI makes copyright easy. With the Church Copyright License™, churches, organizations, and schools can be legally covered.
With the license options you can download music or lyrics, copy and reproduce the words within and additionally display films. All while saving administrative time, effort and expense.
