CHURCH STREAMING LICENCE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Licence Details

The CCLI Streaming licence allows you to stream or podcast your live-recorded worship service music on your church’s website or other streaming services. So you can now include your music along with the Pastor’s message as you webcast your church service.


Terms of Agreement

Here are the Terms and Conditions for the CCLI Streaming Licence, covering the rights and restrictions for licence holders. Acceptance of these Terms and Conditions is required before a licence can be issued.

  • The Licenced Rights

    • Definitions

      • Streaming – The non-exclusive right for the Church to Stream, free of charge, from Approved Websites, in audio and/or video form, Songs performed in Church Services.
    • Clarification of the Licensed Rights
      • Approved Website is either:
        • a single proprietary website which the Church considers to be its primary, home website, i.e. it is used by the Church for the purpose of communicating to Church members; or
        • a streaming service that is used by the Church for the purpose of streaming its Church Service.
      • Church is the church or other organization that conducts worship or related services and executes a Church Streaming/Podcasting Licence.
      • Church Service is any Church service at a place of worship or other religious assembly under the authority of the Church (as such is commonly understood in the church community) where Church members participate in congregational worship.
      • Podcast, Podcasting – The single digital distribution of audio or video (including synchronized text or still images) files of Church Services that contain Songs, in whole or in part, provided over the Internet by way of website feeds through Approved Websites to personal computers, portable media players or any other device capable of receiving such files, which enables end users to syndicate, subscribe to an RSS feed (or other similar push-based technology) and automatically receive future Podcast files.
      • Song is any musical composition (words and/or music) that is authorized by the Owner to be Streamed or Podcasted under the Church Streaming/Podcasting Licence.
      • Stream, Streaming – The digital transmission of a Song in such a manner that: a) the audio or visual aspect of the Song is rendered simultaneously with its transmission; and b) such transmission does not result in the creation of a residual or fixed copy of the Song so transmitted and so that the Song so transmitted is not able to be captured, saved, copied, stored or otherwise reproduced, distributed or retransmitted in any manner by any means whatsoever.
  • The Reserved Rights

    Any and all other rights not expressly granted to the Church in this Streaming Licence are reserved in their entirety to the Owner(s) of the Song. Without limitation, a Church cannot:

    • Charge a fee for Streaming or Podcasting Church Services that contain Songs hereunder.
    • Grant a third-party the right to Stream or Podcast or otherwise digitally transmit Songs in any manner.
    • Stream or Podcast pre-recorded recordings (such as artist or record label recordings of Songs sold commercially).
    • Stream or Podcast Songs contained in concerts, conferences, and special events held at the Church property where a financial charge, including donations, is required for attendance (such as a Saturday night artist concert held at the Church or a special third-party ministry event held at the Church).
    • Stream or Podcast Songs contained in non-Church Service audio and/or video content (such as a non Church Service teaching video, televised events or special productions).
  • Licence Fees

    • The Licence Fee shall be payable annually.
    • The renewal of the Licence Fee shall be due and payable prior to the expiration of the CCLI Streaming Licence.
    • The failure to pay the Licence Fee will result in the cancellation and revocation of all rights herein granted.
    • CCLI shall have the right to increase the Licence Fee in subsequent years upon written notice at renewal.
  • Termination

    • Church shall have the right to terminate this licence at any time. Said termination shall be effective 30 days after receipt by CCLI of written notice of termination.
      • In the event Church requests termination prior to the third month of coverage, CCLI shall refund the Licence Fee less a 25% handling charge. Thereafter, the refund shall be the prorated unused portion of the Licence Fee less a 25% handling charge.
    • CCLI shall have the right to terminate this licence for any of the following reasons:
      • Failure by Church to pay the Licence Fee in which case termination shall be automatic and shall occur on the expiration date.
      • Non-compliance with the terms and conditions of this Church Streaming and Podcast Licence, in which case said termination shall be effective 30 days after receipt by Church of written notice of termination.
  • Other

    • This Licence shall be in effect only if you have a current, valid Church Copyright Licence with CCLI.
    • This Licence cannot be assigned or transferred by Church without CCLI’s approval.

Song Validation

CCLI’s Song Search available at songselect.ccli.com makes it easy to validate the participation of a song or catalogue in the programme.

Simply enter the song title in the search box and confirm the associated catalogue and author names. If your initial search results do not include the song you are looking for, check the box next to “Expand search to show all songs” for more results. Find a match and you’re good to go. If you do not find a match, the song is likely not covered by the Licence.

When in doubt, CCLI’s Customer Service is ready to help at Customer Support.
