How do I report my song usage?
Church Streaming License reporting is built on your setlist usage. When you build a setlist on MultiTracks.com, in Playback, or in ChartBuilder, the songs will be reported based on setlist date. (More Info)
Why does accurate reporting matter?
Accurate reporting supports the original artists and songwriters by ensuring they're given full credit for the use of their works. Auto-reporting your setlists is the most accurate way to report which songs were played when, in real time.
We made last-minute changes to our setlist and added a song. How do I make sure it’s reported?
To ensure accurate reporting, Setlist changes are locked two weeks after the scheduled service time. If you need to make changes after your service, you can update past Setlists in the two week period after it's scheduled date.
How do I report a song not included in the MultiTracks.com catalog?
A process for reporting song usage outside our catalog is provided through the Setlist tool. Is a song missing? Please request the song so we can seek any songs not currently covered by the Church Streaming License.
I’m currently reporting elsewhere. Does that mean I cannot switch to the Church Streaming License?
You can start using the Church Streaming License today to take advantage of auto-reporting for a vast majority of artists!
What if I’m based outside of the U.S.?
The Church Streaming license is currently only applicable for organizations based in the U.S. We’re actively working on expanding to other countries and are excited to announce those expansions soon!
Do I need to display any licensing or publishing information on my live streams or in my lyric projection software?
No. The Church Streaming License does not require licensing or publishing information to be displayed either for in-person or live-streamed events. We do encourage you to display the song title and writer information in a summary slide at the end of your worship service for those in your congregation who might like to know the song information, but displaying the MTID on your presentation slides during your worship service is not required.
What does this mean for the gratis license?
With the introduction of the Church Streaming License, the Gratis License has been phased out for every licensor who is now a part of the Church Streaming License.
Because many licensors are a part of the Church Streaming License and no longer a part of the Gratis License, we recommend signing up for the Church Streaming License to cover your live stream activity.
How does Pricing Work?
The Church Streaming License can be purchased annual or monthly, based on preference, and is calculated by congregation size. For current pricing see the pricing page: https://multitracks.com/products/churchstreaminglicense/#pricing
