Copyrights for Live Streaming

Many churches are choosing to live-stream their Sunday worship, concerts, wedding, funerals, and other events. United Methodist Communications is offering live streaming service through Techshop and the websiite www.myUMClive.com. Once your congregation has made the decision to live stream, it must also obtain the appropriate licensing or permissions to cover the use of all copyrighted materials in the service. These costs and services are not included with the myUMClive service.

Penalties for copyright infringement are high. See "Copyright 101: Penalties for Copyright Infringement (USA Only)."
