Permission Comes in Many Forms

It’s all about what you can do with CCLI, not about what you can’t.

As Chris settled in at his desk in the CCLI office and took his first sip of coffee, his phone rang…

It was Mark from the head office of a major youth organisation. He was concerned that some of their forthcoming summer camps might not have adequate copyright cover.

“We strive to do everything with excellence and integrity,” said Mark. “We teach our leaders and teams about the importance of getting copyright permissions. They know to contact CCLI if they intend to use any creative work that might be in copyright.”
Chris confirmed that many of their regional camps were already licensed by CCLI. He asked what CCLI could do to help further.

“For us, it’s a simple risk-management issue,” continued Mark. “With staff changes in the office and volunteers running the camps, getting copyright permission can fall through the cracks. Is there any way to license all of our camps collectively?”

Chris explained that CCLI has arranged Central Payment agreements with similar organisations and ministries. They enjoy the peace-of-mind from knowing everything is covered… and often a discount! Mark agreed take this option to their board. It seemed like a win-win scenario for everyone involved.

Chris sipped more coffee as he checked his emails. There were messages from an itinerant prison chaplain, and a Christian conference centre.

Michaela, the prison chaplain, was asking about making songbooks for her travelling ministry. She visits inmates in different prisons across the north of England. Chris replied, explaining that CCLI could tailor a licence solution to cover her, sending her the relevant links on CCLI’s website, and finishing that he would call her shortly to discuss.

The conference centre needed permission to project song lyrics and to make DVD recordings of their worship meetings.

Chris can always help. CCLI can usually provide the licence cover required, but where it can’t, Chris has connections with many of the other copyright organisations that can provide a solution. Sometimes he even acts as a go-between, helping the ministry feel confident they’ve got the right cover at a fair price.

CCLI’s goal is to empower ministries by simplifying copyright and enabling discovery of new media. It’s all about what you can do with CCLI, not about what you can’t.

Chris finished his coffee when his phone rang again. A church leader had a seven-day mission event starting tomorrow, and they were going to show scenes from several films, something they don’t normally do.

“CCLI offers an event version of the Church Video Licence,” Chris told him. “It’s less expensive than an annual licence and covers you for up to 14 days.” The leader was relieved and happily ordered the licence.

Time for another cup of coffee.
