Streaming License Terms of Agreement

Streaming License

Terms of Agreement

Welcome to CCLI’s Streaming License (“License”).  To enjoy the rights and benefits your License provides, your understanding and adherence to the following is necessary, and you agree to:

  • Keep your License in good standing by paying the annual fee when it is due
  • Honor the terms and conditions of this program as outlined in the following sections marked Permitted Activities and Activities Not Permitted
  • Validate the participation of each Song before you Stream it (see how in the Song Validation section)
  • Use the License in a lawful and ethical manner

Permitted Activities

An active License allows you to “Stream” (i.e. digitally transmit, retransmit, distribute and play back) participating Songs (“Songs”) from your church’s proprietary website, a hosted website or a streaming service in the following manner.  You may:

  • Live stream Songs performed in your church services in audio and/or video form
  • Retransmit Songs performed in your church services in audio and/or video form
  • Distribute audio or video files of Songs performed in your church services to personal computers, portable media players or a similar device capable of receiving such files
  • 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)

All rights not specified here are reserved to and for the benefit of the copyright owner.

Activities Not Permitted

This License has certain important and necessary limitations and you may not:

  • Charge a fee or receive any form of compensation for any of the Permitted Activities
  • Assign or transfer any rights under your License to any other church or group
  • Authorize any third-party that is not your church’s proprietary website, a hosted website or a streaming service to Stream Songs
  • Stream artist or record label recordings of Songs
  • Stream Songs from concerts, conferences and special events held at the Church property where a financial charge, including donations, is required for attendance
  • Stream Songs contained in non-Church Service audio and/or video content such as a non-Church Service teaching video, televised events or special productions
  • Regarding YouTube or any similar streaming service used by your Church, sublicense or enter into any revenue sharing agreement for the monetization of a Song, including videos that are derived from a streaming website or service but are embedded in your Church’s website, as this right is reserved exclusively to the copyright owner
  • Regarding YouTube or a similar service, block the use of advertising placed by a streaming website or service on behalf of a Song owner

Song Validation

CCLI’s Song Search available at www.ccli.com makes it easy to validate the participation of a Song or catalog in the program.

Simply enter the song title in the search box and confirm the associated catalog and author names.  Find a match and you’re good to go.

For catalogs, select “View authorized catalogs” and locate the name.  If the SELECTED TITLES icon is not present, all Songs in that catalog are authorized for copying.  If the icon is present, select the catalog name and review the listing of participating Songs.  If the Song you wish to copy is listed, you may copy it.  If not, the song is not covered by the License.
