Thanks for the PDF, Simar.
I would still like Adobe to clarify this further, as although the Terms and Conditions seem to imply that it is okay to use a stock photo on a book/e-book cover which may sell over 500,000 copies on an Extended License (and I'm not a lawyer, so my interpretation of the legal jargon could be incorrect), the language in the original article (Use of images on book/e-book covers) I posted seems to specifically exclude any mention of the Extended License when it comes to book/e-book covers, but just gives a generalized statement that Adobe Stock Photos cannot be used on more than 500,000 copies regardless of type of license.
That's a bit concerning to me, and I really want to avoid any legal issues later on.
Yes! your need would require Extended license.
Restriction of print to 500,000 copies is for Standard license.
Hope this helps.
Alrighty—thank you for clarifying on behalf of Adobe. I would also suggest that it be clarified on the Adobe Stock known issues and limitations that the 500,000 limit would be removed for books/e-books if an Extended License is purchased. Can you help regarding the issue of modification? It seems like that's okay, but would really love clarification on that too. Thanks Simar!
Thanks for your feedback though.
so, what you are saying is that a picture from adobe stock may be used for a book cover that will be sold for profit? without infringing any rights, is that correct?

Hi kee quarm,
Adobe Stock pictures can be used for a book cover and extended license allows you to create products for resale provided you follow all the legal terms and restrictions as given in http://www.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/legal/servicetou/Adobe_Stock_Terms-en_US-20170630 _2200.pdf
Also, you may refer to Common Questions, Adobe Stock for more details.
Feel free to update this thread in case of any additional query.
