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.
CCLI® makes copyright easy. With the CCLI® Copyright Licence™, churches, organisations and mobile/itinerant workers can be legally covered, saving administrative time, effort and expense.

Making Custom Arrangements
