This summer our church would like to do a summer series that includes video clips from some popular movies as sermon illustrations. I'm trying to do due diligence in making sure we have the right copyright license in place to play the clips, but finding the process to be quite complicated. I looked into the CVLI license as that sounded perfect for what we wanted to do, but was disappointed to find that in Canada they do not cover many of the major producers.
Have you incorporated clips from movies into your services in the past? How did that work with copyright?
As a secondary related question, we record our sermons on video and post on YouTube. I'd love to be able to include the movie clips not only in the main service, but also in the YouTube recording... do you know if there might be a license out there that would allow us to do that?
Being able to use the video clip illustrations will add a lot to the service so I'm hopeful we can find a way to make it work!
