Is it ok to use a standard licensed photo as the cover art for a music album? This would not be printed, only displayed digitally on Spotify, Apple Music, Instagram etc. 

 

Thank you!

As the asset is not the primary motivation for buying your music, a standard license will do, if you stay below the 500k displays/prints.

Thank you! So the 500k only applies to physical distribution, right? Not digital views.

No, the 500k applies to all print and print like distribution. An example would be a magazine distributed digitally.

The 500k does not count for your website. But as the asset is used as the CD cover, it is a print like application. That is what I read out of the license terms.

If you sell your album 500k times you can afford an enhanced license... 😄
