Licensing Made Easy

CCLI makes it easy to ensure your church is covered.

If your church copies or displays songs, graphics, or videos, it’s likely you need to consider copyright. Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI) makes that possible with its various licenses offered. These licenses give leaders, musicians, and volunteers the freedom to enrich services and activities with a world of creative works, confident they have the moral and legal permission to do so. Our responsibility is to give honor back to those whose skill in songwriting is a blessing and benefit to us. One of the ways we can ensure this happens is through proper licensing and reporting.

Church Copyright License

Protect your church. The CCLI Copyright License ensures your church is covered. Simply and legally. The Copyright License is tailored to your congregational singing activities and provides broad coverage for lyric storage, projections, song sheets, bulletin inserts, instrumental/vocal arrangements and service recordings. Optional rehearsal coverage enables duplication and sharing of commercial audio recordings and custom rehearsal tracks. Optional coverage is also available for streaming or podcasting recorded services.

Streaming Licenses

Stay connected with your congregation. Start streaming or webcasting live-recorded worship services. Over 3,000 publishers are covered, representing the vast majority of Christian songs sung in worship services. If the CCLI Church Copyright License covers song activity in your usual place of worship, the Streaming and Streaming Plus licenses extend that protection to services posted online.
