Songwriting, Music Licensing and the Gospel

Good post by Tim Smith @ Mars Hill Seattle which in part says:

Do you really want to put your music out in a way that gives the church no legal way to record a demo for its band or even a rough recording to help the congregation learn your song?

Do you really need someone to pay you off every time they display the lyrics of your song or play it at something besides an official worship service?

Worth careful consideration of all church music leaders, especially as an introduction to Creative Commons Licensing.
