Church Copyright License®

The Challenge

Understanding the many copyright issues related to music is complicated. Moreover, the law is confusing.

For churches, schools or organizations, a seemingly honest error or omission can be embarrassing, time-consuming, and costly. At the same time, the law seeks fairness and protection for all parties.

The Solution

CCLI makes copyright easy. With the CCLI Church Copyright License, churches, organizations and schools can be legally covered.

With the license options, you are covered for the copying activities listed below. All while saving administrative time, effort and expense.

The CCLI Church Copyright License covers the following:

Access Lyrics - NEW!

Easily access more than 200,000 song lyrics through SongSelect


Display Lyrics

Enter and store song lyrics on any computer for visual projection to assist with congregational singing

Print Songs

Print songs, hymns and lyrics in bulletins, programs, liturgies and song sheets for congregational singing

Record Services

Record and capture your worship services (audio and video), provided you only are recording live music

Make Custom Arrangements

Arrange, print and copy your own vocal and instrumental arrangements for congregational singing where a published version is not available

Translate Songs

Translate song lyrics into any other language for congregational singing where a published version is not accessible or available


See our CCLI Church Copyright License Manual for more details

Stream Master Recordings and Multitracks NEW!

Use master recordings and multitracks (e.g. stems, backing tracks, community tracks) to enhance your online church experience.

License Restrictions

The CCLI Rehearsal license allows you to legally copy commercial audio recordings and your own custom rehearsal tracks, and share audio files via email, flash drives or on worship planning websites. The copies are intended for rehearsal purposes only, and are not intended to remain as permanent copies for personal collections.

License Restrictions

The CCLI Streaming license 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. The Streaming license does not cover the streaming of secular songs. If your church wants to webcast performances of secular songs, you may want to a consider a webcasting license from the performance rights societies (ASCAP, BMI, SESAC) or other service companies. Please contact CCLI at 1-800-234-2446 for assistance.

Covering a diverse range of ministries and events

We know that one size doesn’t fit every ministry. To meet your needs, we have tailored a Copyright License specifically for you.

How to Determine If You Need a Multi-Site License

CCLI uses the following criteria to help determine if a church is a “multi-site” church:

Please note that CCLI can cover sites located in multiple states or provinces, but cannot cover sites in multiple countries under a single Multi-Site License. Sites in different countries will need to be covered by their own standard Church Copyright License (if available).

The Mobile License is the same as the Church Copyright License, except:

Have we covered the songs you love?

With more than 500,000 songs available from more than 3,000 publishers, you can rest assured that the songs you love are covered. Use SongSelect to find the legal songs that fit your need.
