1.         Material:

Report from the SCBP, Section 10.0 (8.2.4)

2.         Observations:

  • 2.2.      These royalties amount to approximately $12.50 per 1000 printed copies. They will also apply to future reprints of the Book of Praise.

3.         Consideration

Premier Printing presently pays the required royalties for copyrighted hymns used in the Book of Praise according to their contract with the SCBP (Report section 2.1).
