Question by Bob B: I am a new filmmaker for a local church and I have a copyright question?
I am planning on making a documentary for a mission trip with a church this summer and have a lot of ideas for songs. This documentary would not be for resale, commercial use, or for any monetary gain. Completely non-profit. Do I need to purchase the rights to the songs, or can I display the copyright info during the credits?

Not really no. Just as long as you don’t try to sell it or show it at a large venue where the mass media will see it (like Cannes), then you should be fine.
