Are you one of those ahead-of-the-game church musicians who finalizes their Advent and Christmas plans in July? Or are you just beginning to flesh out your ideas for future liturgical seasons? No matter which season you are planning, if your church shares its worship services online, there is no time like the present to begin researching copyright permissions—especially for your choral and instrumental music. Give yourself and our Member Publishers the gift of time! Complete your Advent and Christmas manual submissions well in advance to ensure you have plenty of time to obtain the permissions you need.

Over the last few years, the need for organizations to have online licensing permissions has increased significantly. In fact, 64% of our License Holders currently hold one of our annual term Podcast / Streaming Licenses to cover the copyrighted titles from our Member Publishers that they use in their online worship services. Whether your organization already holds one of these licenses or you are still exploring the ways that offering online worship services could better connect you with your congregation, read this blog for creative ways to utilize our Podcast / Streaming License permissions.
