Legal/Copyright Advice

Many churches move to live broadcasts and shared videos of their worship services. Now that you’ve worked out the process, you need to give some thought to what kinds of licensing you need to share these works.  There was an initial window where licensing requirements were suspended, but that has passed.

Fortunately, Members of Faith INFO, The Pilgrim Press, and UCC Legal Counsel have your back. They have created a video to address your questions about copyright, legal implications, licensing, streaming, and more. Check it out on YouTube.
