Covid-19 Response, Streaming Rights, and Ongoing Updates
Latest Update 4/8/20
To all our church and ministry partners,
This time in our world, our country, and our own churches is unprecedented. Trying to do life, church, and community during the Covid-19 pandemic is a new challenge that we’re all learning to navigate together. As pastors in our own local churches, we understand those challenges you’re facing. So we’re making a few changes related to our streaming licensing.
You can now include videos that indicate “Includes Streaming Rights” in your streaming or pre-recorded services online. This includes most Skit Guys produced content and all of our MORE library content. Just look for the yellow label. This license adjustment is retroactive. Any previously purchased videos fall into this new licensing model.
You can include videos with "Includes Streaming Rights" in your worship service stream that is uploaded to YouTube, Facebook, or any other streaming provider.
You still can not upload a purchased Skit Guys video individually, on its own, onto any social media platform, including YouTube. This excludes our recently released Easter Online Invite video.
More producers of content on SkitGuys.com will be changing their licensing to allow for streaming services as well. More info to come as we hear from all of them.
YouTube may be flagging and taking videos down automatically due to more robots working than humans over there. Get details here: https://youtube-creators.googleblog.com/2020/03/p...
We join you and your communities in prayer and will be lifting you up during this time. Please keep the Skit Guys team in your prayers as well, as the impact of this pandemic has not yet become clear and we are praying that live shows and video and movie production can continue later this spring. As a 501c3, we understand the financial strains impacting nonprofits across the country, and we appreciate your prayers and support in this journey.
Thanks again for allowing us to do ministry with you.
Tommy & Eddie
The Skit Guys
