The Baptist Churches of VIC & TAS have a “Copyright License Scheme” arrangement with CCLI (Christian Copyright Licensing International Pty Ltd) for the following licenses:

  • Church Copyright
  • Music Reproduction
  • Church Video

The “Copyright License Scheme” offers your church the convenience of one annual renewal date for all your CCLI licenses and enables you to take advantage of the bulk purchase discounts on offer by CCLI. It is important to recognise that failure to renew or register for an appropriate license(s), either via the BUV or directly through the CCLI, may result in your church being in breach of current Copyright Legislation.

The Church Copyright License (save 22%) enables you to make overhead transparencies, song sheets and songbooks, maintain a database of lyrics on a computer, record worship services and make arrangements of the music.

The Music Reproduction License (save 10%) resources your Church’s musicians by allowing multiple copies from a single original source. New songs can be introduced easily, ethically and legally.

The Church Video License (save up to 20%) covers public viewings in your church of all, or any portion, of a film from participating producers.

SongSelect Premium Licenses is an online resource featuring the lyrics of thousands of songs, sound samples, chord charts, lead sheets (melody line) and vocal sheets (up to 4-part harmony). Included is a music player, to play the music on the lead sheets and hymn sheets, and to transpose the music.

Church Streaming License is a new license that allows your church to stream or webcast your services, including worship. This license also includes coverage for the streaming of commercial songs for any special items performed during your church service.

Please refer to the CCLI website for further details on all of the above licenses http://au.ccli.com/

In addition to the above CCLI Licenses, you can also obtain from Heritage Films – The Big Studio Movie License (save 10 – 20%) which enables you to screen any films from some big producers like Walt Disney, Roadshow Films, Warner Bros, Sony, Icon, Hoyts Distribution, Studio Canal, Hopscotch, E-one, Madman, Rialto, Palace Films, Transmission and Pinnacle Films, which are currently not covered by CCLI Video License. For more details visit the below website https://church.bsml.com.au/

If your church has previously purchased The Big Studio Movie License, you can still join the Denominational License Scheme and maybe entitled to a credit to your account – just indicate in the Application Form enclosed with this letter.

If you have any questions regarding the CCLI or The Big Studio Movie Licenses, please email ccli@buv.com.au.
