Copyright information

CCLI has created handy printable information sheets to help you inform others in your team or congregation about copyright in church. These Fact Files are intended to be a comprehensive guide to copyright in the church, covering not just CCLI, but all information that churches might need to be aware of.

Not sure which licences you need? This table will show you at a glance.

Click on an activity to find out more about the licences required, or on the name of a licence for full details of what that licence covers. When you know which licences you need, you can view the licence fees and apply online via these links to the CCLI website.
