WHY A STREAMING PROJECT?

Streaming has become the new way of sharing content. A Website/Streaming license will allow you to license streaming video or audio on your website. In addition to video and audio you may also request a license to display lyrics on a blog or website.

CAN I LICENSE THE ARTIST RECORDING?

If we control the artist recording it will show up under the recordings section of the Song Detail page and be labeled "Y" next to the “controlled” option. When you requesting your license, if we control the artist recording you can select the "Artist Recording" configuration that matches the first configuration you selected.

DOES YOUR CHURCH NEED TO STREAM A WORSHIP SERVICE?

For churches that use live instruments and record their services they need permission to use the composition. Composition rights for churches are managed by CCLI, and can be covered under a CCLI license and/or CCLI streaming license.
 
For churches that use MultiTracks or other recorded music, in addition to the composition rights they need permission to use: 
Tthe sound recording. The sound recording rights for churches are managed and/or sublicensed by
a.) MultiTracks or similar service if they are using a MultiTrack. View MultiTrack's response to licensing MultiTracks here:https://www.multitracks.com/conference/
OR b.) the record label itself that produced the track they are using. 
 
Important things to note: Churches that have a CCLI streaming license and upload their videos to YouTube are not prevented from having content claims show up on their videos. This is a statement direct from the CCLI website: Upload videos to YouTube and similar services provided that copyright owners have the right to monetize and place ads on videos containing their owned copyrights (these terms of agreement do not override those of the streaming platforms)
