The Myths of Performance Rights
Are you properly taking care of your legal responsibilities when it comes to music at the church? Put aside any dialogue of in-service music – its what you are doing outside of your church service that could have you in legal hot water. Do you do any of the following:
- play music at a church picnic
- use on-hold music
- stream your services online
If you do any of the above – or a wide variety of other tasks with music – then you are in need of obtaining a performance license to be legal. The sad truth is that quite a few churches fall under one of two different groups when it comes to failure to obtain a performance license: on one hand there are churches who simply aren’t aware of the legality of the issue and, on the other hand, are those who know but assume that the long arm of the law will not crack down on a church.
Regardless of what your personal situation is – I want you to be armed with all the facts. To help in this, my great friends at Worship Leader Magazine are affording you the opportunity to attend a free webinar January 27th at 1pm CST called “Top 5 Myths of Performance Rights”.
