Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI) is an organisation that seeks to encourage the spirit of worship worldwide. By offering a variety of copyright licences, resources and services, CCLI is able to encourage churches and organisations to make the most of the wide range of worship and multimedia material available today.
CCLI is able to offer practical advice and support through the maze of copyright. With systems in place to ensure that copyright owners are fairly rewarded for their work, CCLI has become highly respected among the copyright organisations around today. CCLI licences are available in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Ireland, Faroe Islands, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Luxemburg, New Zealand, The Netherlands, Norway, South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Originally established in 1988 to provide a copyright solution for churches wanting to reproduce the words of hymns and worship songs for their times of worship, CCLI has responded to advances in technology to provide cover for many activities that churches are using to engage with their congregations and outreach into their communities. CCLI now serves more than 240,000 churches worldwide in worship. It was founded as a ministry of the Church and a service to the Church, to educate the Church about copyright laws, to protect the Church from the consequences of copyright infringements and to encourage greater utilisation of copyrights in Church services.
CCLI's vision is to establish a strong communication network serving the Christian community, providing resources that inform, inspire, equip and add value. By encouraging the spirit of worship, our mission is to help the worldwide church to enhance its worship expression spontaneously, conveniently, affordably and legally.
