Can I post a video of my choir on YouTube or elsewhere on the internet?
Posting videos online does normally require a license. Fortunately, The Lorenz Corporation has an existing agreement with YouTube that does not require you to purchase any additional licensing if your video is a live performance by your choir.
If you would like to stream a video elsewhere or it uses an accompaniment track or other recording, a license may be required. Please contact Music Services to obtain the appropriate license.
Doesn't my CCLI license cover video recordings?
The general CCLI license does not cover online distribution (only physical audiocassettes, CDs, videotapes, and DVDs). Most CCLI license holders are subject to the same rules as above and should contact Music Services.
If you have the additional streaming license through CCLI, you may be able to stream or podcast your recorded worship service. Please see the CCLI website for details and restrictions.
Doesn't my One License license cover video recordings?
Most One License licenses do not cover online distribution.
However, if you have the podcast/streaming license, you may be able to archive your service while you have the license and live-stream to members of your congregation who are homebound, traveling, or on active duty. This license only covers live performances. If an accompaniment track or other assistive recordings were used to enhance the performance, please contact Music Services. Once your license expires, all material must be removed. Please see the One License website for details and restrictions.
