Easy Performance Licensing for Ticketed Christmas Programs

By Christian Copyright Solutions on November 30, 2011

Thanksgiving family festivities soon fade as worship leaders and creative directors turn their focus to the myriad of details surrounding production of Christmas programs. Trying to deal with copyright issues can be confusing and add extra stress to an already frenzied schedule.

One of the fastest and easiest ways to make sure your holiday programs are copyright compliant is to optimize performance blanket licenses. The U.S. Copyright Religious Service Exemption (RSE) does not apply to any concerts or programs that are outside your religious service and therefore require performance licenses.

CopyrightSolver’s PERFORMmusic license allows you to play and perform more than 16 million secular and Christian music in any church programs you  present, including popular Christmas songs like, “Little Drummer Boy,” “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas,” and “Winter Wonderland.” You can obtain instant coverage as soon as you sign up and pay online.

Although your PERFORMmusic license does not allow you to charge admission for your special events, pageants and concerts, admission fees can be a great fundraising opportunity for your ministry.  Now it’s fast and easy to extend your coverage to keep all your ticketed holiday events legal. You must first have the PERFORMmusic license to get the supplemental Ticketed Event coverage. Fill out our ticketed event report and send it back to us. It’s that simple!
