The author, Publishing Manager for ABC Publishing, talks about the advances in copying and reproducing texts (including music and hymns) which have taken place in the last fifty years or so. Now when technology makes reproducing text so much easier there has grown a concomitant need to determine copyright and to spend time obtaining copyright permission and paying fees. Today, licensing is becoming a popular way to make music and text available. Later this year "ABC Publishing through ABC Bookstore plans to launch a licensing program for Canadian Anglican liturgy. Soon Anglican churches will be able to access authorized liturgies from CD and to copy and portion of any service available through the licensing program. This will make it easy to insert portions of services into bulletins or to customize service booklets for the pews. With Anglican Liturgy Licensing, churches will no longer need to obtain permission from copyright owners listed in liturgical texts, such as `The Book of Alternative Services', or from General Synod. Through the low licensing fee based on attendance, copyright owners will be compensated and General Synod will be enabled to continue providing liturgical resources for the church in the future. A fee of $100 for up to 50 parishioners, and $50 for each additional 50 parishioners, is being proposed".
