There are many different publishers of hymns. Most contemporary hymns use either One License or CCLI (Christian Copyright Licensing International)
However, not all hymns have the same licensing. That is the advantage of having a common hymnal--the publisher of the hymnal has taken the time to ensure all the music is published with permission.

Also the BCP or the ELW or whatever denominational hymnal out there will contain hymns that are in light with the teachings of the denomination.

I actually think screens in sanctuaries are a passing fad. Oh sure, the megachurches love to use them, but 70% of all Christians are not going to megachurches. Not too long ago, the in thing was to have e-readers like the Kindle or the Nook. Everyone was predicting the death of the printed page. Well, guess which format is now having a resurgence. The printed page.

And, while we are at it, the makers of MP3 are saying the format is dead; and, again, Vinyl records are booming.

Right, and that's the point. You have to be careful and make sure copyright issues are properly covered. I have encountered congregations that aren't careful about that, and as a copyright holder, I appreciate those who are careful.

FWIW, the new PC(USA) hymnal, Glory to God, is available in various electronic formats—including projectable, printable (to go into the bulletins described in the OP) and in an iPad/tablet app—in addition to the traditional books.
