How does this Licence benefit our School?

It saves time and money
It helps you overcome the many problems of obtaining permission to copy words of songs. As soon as you purchase your licence, you have immediate access to the use of over 200,000 songs, and new songs are being added for you every day.

It’s affordable
Without a licence, you must obtain permission to reproduce lyrics from the original copy owned by your school. Now, you only need to pay one modest annual fee, based on how many students and guests will be using the resources.

It’s legal
Copyright law is very detailed and demanding. Permission is needed from copyright owners to reproduce songs words. CCLI offers a “blanket clearance” solution that helps take the stress out of copyright law for you.

It’s Ethical
It ensures you comply with the laws of this country and at the same time rewards creators and publishers of Christian music for their labors.

Gives greater music options for your school
This licence opens the door to huge savings in making copies of song words. You can now enlarge the range of songs for your worship times.

IMPORTANT: This Licence does not convey the right to make copies of octavos, cantatas, musicals, orchestrations, vocal scores, handbell music, or other instrumental arrangements.


What’s the Cost?

The annual fee for a Schools Copyright License is determined by the size of your school. School size is based on how many people use the resources.
