Modern churches are some of the most frequent music users in our society. Many of them have several services during a week, and worship music is a very important component here. Contemporary worship music is performed in churches all over the world each week, and new songs are constantly added to the “pool”. This is also the case in Norway. When music is performed, copyright is involved. According to copyright law, music cannot be performed publicly without a license. In Norway, there are certain arrangements to ensure this for music venues, but also for churches. Based on my experience as a worship musician for many years, I wondered how well this was being handled. Do Norwegian churches adhere to copyright for the music used in their services? This is what this thesis will attempt to uncover. Hopefully, it will shed some light on a topic that is deserving of more attention.
