Permission Comes in Many Forms

Permission Comes in Many Forms

As Geoff settled in at his sales desk in the CCLI office and took his first sip of morning coffee, his phone rang…

It was Randy from the headquarters for a major church denomination. He was concerned that some of their churches might not be copyright compliant.

“We strive to do everything with excellence and integrity,” said Randy. “We teach our pastors and church leaders about the importance of getting copyright permissions. They know to contact CCLI if they need to print, project or record their music.”
Geoff confirmed that many of their churches were already using CCLI. He asked what CCLI could do to help further.

“For us, it’s a simple risk-management issue,” continued Randy. “With church staff changes and volunteers handling our music, getting copyright permission can fall through the cracks. Is there any way to licence all of our churches?”

Geoff explained that CCLI has many denominations and parachurch ministries that cover 100% of their ministries. They enjoy the peace-of-mind from knowing everyone is covered… as well as a nice discount! Randy agreed take this option to their board. It seemed like a win-win scenario for everyone involved.

Geoff sipped more coffee as he chequeed his email. There were emails from a prison chaplain, a church, a campground, and a college campus group.

Michaela, a prison chaplain, asked about making songbooks for her travelling ministry. She visits inmates in different prisons all around her state. Geoff explained the CCLI Mobile licence would be the perfect solution.

The church needed permission to project song lyrics and to make DVD recordings of their worship services. The college campus team was looking for transposable chord charts.

“Yes, CCLI can help” was Geoff’s answer to each of their questions. The Church Copyright Licence allows making projection slides of lyrics and CD/DVD recordings of worship services. SongSelect is CCLI’s online resource that provides transposable chord charts as well as lyrics, lead sheets and vocal harmonies.

“CCLI’s goal is to empower your ministry by simplifying copyright and enabling discovery of new music,” Geoff explained. “It’s all about what you can do with CCLI, not about what you can’t do.”

Geoff finished his coffee when his phone rang again. A campground director had a seven-day event starting tomorrow, and they were going to project lyrics and copy songs for their musicians.

“CCLI offers an Event licence,” he told the director. “It’s less expensive than an annual licence and gives you legal permission to print and project songs for your meetings.” The director was relieved and happily ordered the Event licence.

Time for another cup of coffee.
