Copyright Owners


If you’ve written a song (words or music) then you are by definition a copyright owner unless you give this right to someone on your behalf.

As a copyright owner you are entitled to receive payment if your work is reproduced by another person. Our aim at CCLI is to ensure that you are rewarded fairly for your creativity in a professional way.
