Downloadable Product Copyright Rules

We are excited to offer more and more downloadable content than ever on WordMusic.com. However, it's important for you to follow applicable copyright laws in order to preserve our ability to continue to offer quality music ministry resources for you and everyone. Here is a quick guide to following copyright laws when purchasing and distributing this content.

Downloadable Sheet Music

When purchasing downloadable sheet music such as anthems, lead sheets, choral books, rhythm charts, and other forms of digital sheet music, a message will be displayed when you click the quantity box to order.  This message will ask you enter the number of copies you plan to make of the item you are purchasing.  You must enter the total number of  copies you plan to make or distribute- including email distribution.  If you need to make or distribute more copies, including by email, in the future, simply log back into your account and purchase additional copies through your shopping cart.

The total number of copies you have made or distributed, including via email, should always equal the cumulative quantity you have purchased of that item as reflected in your order history. For example, if you wish to buy an anthem or choral book and have 46 choir members then you must order 46 digital copies of the anthem or choral book and then make 46 copies from the single copy you've printed.

Downloading Orchestrations

The ONLY EXCEPTION to this Downloadable Sheet Music copyright rule is when you are purchasing an orchestration.  When purchasing an orchestration, you will not receive the message asking you to enter the number of copies you plan to make, and you may make as many copies of each instrumental part as you need to accommodate your performing ensemble.  This is not transferable to other organizations or performance groups.

Downloading Audio Files

When downloading audio files, a message will be displayed when you click the quantity box to order.  This message will ask you to enter the number of copies you plan to make of the item you are purchasing.  You must enter the total number of  copies you plan to make or distribute- including email distribution. If you need to make or distribute more copies, including by email, in the future, simply log back into your account and purchase additional copies through your shopping cart.

The total number of copies you have made or distributed, including via email, should always equal the cumulative quantity you have purchased of that item as reflected in your order history. For example, if you want a listening CD for each member of a 46-member choir, you would order 46 MP3 files for your choir (and make 46 CD copies - or distribute 46 electronic MP3s via the Internet - from the MP3 file that is delivered to you by Word Music).

Thank you for partnering with Word Music and respecting copyright law, thus preserving the livelihoods of the publishers, writers and arrangers who work hard to provide these worship-enhancing resources.  If you have any questions, please contact your Word Music representative.  Click here for contact information.
