Do I need special licensing to broadcast on SermonAudio?

For all content loaded to the site you must have permission from the copyright holder or it must be in the public domain. If you are inquiring as to special licensing for musical portions of Live webcasts we cannot give legal advice other than to say that we have a slightly different policy for broadcasting Live Webcasts on SermonAudio. We request that the musical portion of any service that is broadcast LIVE over SermonAudio not be considered “Contemporary Music” in nature. We have gathered a large listening audience over the years and many are very conservative in background. We wish to be sensitive with this issue. Additionally, it allows us to avoid many of the copyright issues that are oftentimes associated with contemporary music of contemporary artists. This issue is of course not a problem with any uploaded audio sermons since we do not allow music (or any other non-sermon audio) to be included at all.

Here is a helpful link for Copyright/Music licensing issues.
