Churches and religious communities

Churches and religious communities regularly play music at church services, church concerts, or youth events.


For events with free admission organised by a church or a religious community, the rights are licensed under Common Tariff C (CT C).

SUISA grants the licence for the use of the music and distributes the proceeds to the entitled composers, lyricists, and publishers.
