Using Copyrighted Church Materials

Where do I go or who do I see if I have an idea about an LDS book? Well its a combination of a book and LDS primary songs.

Thanks in advance for your help.

First, because it uses Primary songs—and those are copyrighted—you’ll need to apply for permission to use them. CLICK HERE for Copyright Guidelines and contact information.

My understanding is that they are pretty tight about permission to create songbooks. If you’re quoting songs as part of a novel, that’s a little different.

And for those who want to quote General Authorities, start with the Intellectual Property Office, same as with songs.
