Licence Information

Words on Screen™ User Licences

Words on Screen™ CD ROMs are supplied with a single user licence which allows the Words on Screen™ CD ROM to be installed on ONE computer only.

To license the installation of the CD ROM onto network servers and/or two or more computers, please purchase an Annual Digital Site Licence.

Annual Digital Site Licences

With so many songbooks and audio files purchased in digital format, you need a legal way to install or distribute copies for use around the school. Out of the Ark’s Annual Digital Site Licences are the perfect solution!


Cost-effective and flexible, our digital licences give you peace of mind so that you know you are covered for all kinds of digital usage for 12 months, including permission to:

  • Install Words on Screen™ song files from a CD ROM onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  • Download Words on Screen™ song files from a CD ROM onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  • Continue to stream Words on Screen™ songs from your Out of the Ark Music online account on any device (beyond your free period).
  • Copy song files from an Audio CD onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  • Copy MP3 audio files onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  • Upload digital content to an intranet or learning platform.
  • Permit usage of digital content at home for teachers for preparation purposes.

A separate Annual Digital Site Licence is required for each product title that you use in any of these ways and will need to be renewed each year. However, if you have a current Annual Digital Site Licence – Multi-Product, then ALL product titles that you have purchased are covered for digital permissions for one year without the need for individual licences.


You will receive a renewal notice by email 28 days before the end of any 12 month licence period.


You can renew your Annual Digital Site Licences by simply logging into your account if you have one and going to your My Licences page. Pick the relevant licence and click RENEW.


Annual Digital Site Licence – Multi-product


If you have four or more product titles that you wish to license, it is more cost-effective and convenient to purchase an Annual Digital Site Licence – Multi-Product for just £39.96pa. This licence covers the same usages as the single product licences, but gives you blanket digital permissions for ALL Out of the Ark products that you buy. However, it does not include the right to perform any of our nativities or musicals to an audience (other than pupils or staff) - a separate Annual Performance Licence is still required for each of those titles.

Great

By Ell

Fantastic songs that wouldn’t be out of place as Christmas Number 1’s. Our singing audience and the school children loved it.


AMAZING

By KW

Hands down the best book of Christmas songs for young children. Some brilliant up-beat ones, and more lyrical slow pieces that will get all parents shedding a tear at your Christmas service/concert. A must have for any primary music teacher.


A wonderful collection of Christmas Songs

By Mark

I sat and listened to the music during November half term trying to decide which songs we should use in Christmas concerts. It took me ages because they all sounded so Christmassy! Well done once again Out of the Ark!!


5 stars

By ofonzo

great


Fantastic

By Caroline

The songs were varied and good fun with a good level of challenge. We sang one of them in a competition and won!! Especially good for key stage 2.


AWESOME SONGS!!

By theJLSter

I have sung the fantastic collection of the songs myself, and usually our school never sings in singing assembly. But when it came to "A cracking christmas", it was mindblowing! EVERYONE joined in, even the ones that never sing at all, and all the songs were brilliant! I highly recommend this to all year 3-6 pupils, and i have witnessed it myself, and believe me, its AMAZING!!


Fantastic collection

By Tim

Fantastic collection of songs. They have taken our choir to new heights! Superbly matched to Year 3 and Year 4 voices.


Brilliant - but did we expect any different?

By Jackarias

Seriously a fantastic resource. You think what with there being 30 songs that a couple of them are going to be a bit dodgy or 'ones to avoid', but believe me, there is not one song in this collection that couldn't be loved or performed, and especially when the range of styles of the songs covers Reception right through to Year 6! Well done Out of the Ark!
