Reproducing the words to songs using an Overhead Projector and acetates is defined as ‘Print’ (because you have written/typed/printed or copied the words onto an OHP acetate).
If your search doesn’t return the song you are looking for, please check that the title is correctly spelt. Remember that if you're searching by first line, the search results will return the song's correct title (so Stuart Townend's version of 'The Lord's My Shepherd' will return it's official title, which is 'Psalm 23'. If you have the CCL number for the song you can search using that. If you still can’t find the song it may be that it is unauthorised* and so is not included on the Online Reporting site. Please note that permission to reproduce unauthorised songs must be obtained direct from the publisher. The reproduction of these songs should not be reported to CCLI. * An unauthorised song is one that is not covered by CCLI licences.
Unfortunately, songwriters don’t always choose unique titles for their songs, and there can often be several versions/arrangements of the same song by different authors. This can cause some challenges when trying to report a specific song. The ‘Best Match’ feature is there to help, showing the most common titles first. If you find multiple results with that same song title, please check the names of the authors and copyright information to determine which song you need to report against. TIP: If you click on a song title in the list of search results it will display further information about that song including the author, catalogue and copyright details, lyric preview and often a sound sample too.
We’re aware that Online Reporting doesn’t enable users to search for songs based upon the songbook they use. This is a commonly-requested feature and is definitely high on our development ‘to do’ list; we’re working hard to include it in a future release of Online Reporting.
No. The Online Reporting website has now replaced these and is the only way to report to CCLI.
You'll find lots of support and video help-guides on our website to help you make the transition: ie.ccli.com/reporting
