Here is an excerpt from “Planning and Budgeting for Copyright Compliance,” Chapter 5 of our new eBook “Solve the Puzzle of Copyrights: Six Steps To Learning How To Do Music Right” By Susan Fontaine Godwin. You can download the eBook for FREE here.
Church and ministry leaders excel at planning activities, programs and events, but copyright clearances are often not included in their plans.
Honoring copyrights and avoiding the risks of infringement requires intention, planning and preparation. Becoming copyright compliant is a process, and it usually takes time to turn the ship and get everyone on board.
Following the guidelines of our tested P.L.A.N. four-part strategy, you will be able to develop practices that help your organization become copyright compliant. In Chapter 4, you will learn how to plan and budget for copyright licensing, implement policies and procedures for your church or ministry staff and educate, train and direct your employees or team members on copyright issues.
Remember that you can always call and talk to one of our CCS reps at 855-576-5837, if you have any questions about copyright licensing.
