Copyrighting Licensing Artist Representation


The licensing of music is required by the United States Department of Copyrights. The Department of Copyrights seeks to enable owners of original intellectual property (e.g., songs, poetry, stories, etc.) to have control over their property in the same way a person has control over his/her physical property (e.g., paintings, land, house, automobile, etc.). To do so, copyright law requires a "Mechanical License" for any reproduced copy of a song. Reproductions can take many forms, including but not limited to: musical recordings (e.g., CD, cassette, etc.), print (e.g., songbooks, sheet music, etc.), video or movie soundtracks, and multi-media presentations and projects (e.g., CDROM).

The tracking of licensing and royalties for Christian songwriters is handled by Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI). If you and/or your organization are CCLI license holders, you are covered for a limited amount of song usage already. Under CCLI licensing, you and/or your organization are allowed to reproduce lyrics by making photographic slides, overheads, and multimedia presentations. You are also allowed to print the lyrics of a song in a bulletin, insert, or another printed format. For complete details, please see your CCLI guidelines...

If your church or organization is not a CCLI license holder and would like to obtain a CCLI license, simply visit their web site and go through the registration process. It only takes a minute!

If you or your organization would like to include a Little Peach Music, Inc. song in your next project, you will need a Mechanical License. The cost of this license is based on two factors: type of medium (CD, cassette, print, etc.) and number of units manufactured. To request a Mechanical License, simply complete and submit the form below. For more specific information or if you have any questions, please contact our copyright team!
