Licensing Summary:  Important - Read This Now

You are free to use any of our resources anywhere in the school for teaching purposes.

The public performance of a musical or nativity, ie to an audience other than pupils and staff, is permitted if you hold a valid Annual Performance Licence from Out of the Ark Limited.

Annual Performance Licences can be purchased on the relevant product page or on the Buy Licences page of this website. 

The public performance of songs (without the performance of a scripted drama) is permitted if you hold a valid PRS licence.

Making printed copies or photocopies of songbooks for use in the classroom is covered by your Schools Printed Music Licence (SPML) and Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) licences.  You should report your usage when requested by the licence issuers.

Reproducing the lyrics of songs or projecting the lyrics of songs in assemblies and copying the music scores for use in assemblies are covered by your school's CWCL and CWMRL licences from CCLI.  You should report your usage to CCLI on your regular copy reports.

Limitied digital usage rights for Words on Screen™ software are granted by a Single-User Licence which is supplied to you when you purchase Words on Screen™ products.  This allows you for example to install software on one computer but NOT the network server.

More extensive digital usage, for example to install Words on Screen™ on multiple computers or onto a network server, requires an Annual Digital Site Licence (or, in the case of a musical or nativity, an Annual Performance Licence). 

Annual Digital Site Licences and Annual Performance Licences can be purchased on the relevant product page or on the Buy Licences page of this website. 

Please note that Annual Digital Site Licences replace the Extension Licences that were formerly supplied by Out of the Ark Music.  However if you hold an Extension Licence this continues to be valid.
