Churches and other not-for-profits are filled with creative people that are…well….creating. Ministers are writing sermons and books, music leaders are writing beautiful choruses, graphics people and web designers are illustrating messages and the website with fantastic and sophisticated creations. These items that are created as the organization fulfills its mission are works of intellectual property. Creative works like the ones described above are subject to copyright law. Who owns this intellectual property? The organization or the individual that created it?
