I am a musician who recently discovered a way to allow my music to be put on popular streaming sites like Spotify and Apple Music. If I use a Stock image as part of an album cover, strictly for digital art and not for physical distribution, could I use the standard license package or will I need the extended license package?

Here's a good breakdown of the different types of licensing:

License information and Terms of use | Adobe Stock

I'm no expert, but it sounds like the display of album cover art would fall into "unlimited web views" and maybe a "broadcast program," both of which are covered in the standard license.

Experts? Please weigh in here....
