Can you sing any song in church without copyright infringement?

According to U.S. copyright law, churches are exempt from some of the restrictions imposed by copyright law when it comes to singing copyrighted songs during worship services. This exemption allows churches to perform musical works with certain limitations, such as not allowing recordings or broadcasts of the performance and ensuring that the performance is only for a non-profit religious gathering.

What does copyright mean?

Copyright is a form of intellectual property protection that grants creators exclusive rights over their creative works. It gives the creator control over who can reproduce, distribute, and make derivatives of their work. Generally speaking, copyright applies to any original expression fixed in tangible form such as music, literature, artwork, and software.
