YouTube and Copyright
[tweet “You might have an issue with copyright when you upload your videos to YouTube. Here’s why:”]
Just because your church only does hymns doesn’t mean your videos are legal to upload to YouTube. You probably still need either the CCLI streaming license or the Church Copyright Association streaming license.
The problem is that even if you have them, since YouTube doesn’t have a way to indicate that you do, your video could be flagged. Normally, you can dispute this and that dispute will end in your favor, but what happens if it doesn’t.
Watch the video to hear what happened to me.
