It really depends but it sounds like it would fall under fair use. If this is a source of revenue it’s a good question to bring up with your company’s legal team. From copyright dot gov:
> Could I be sued for using somebody else’s work? How about quotes or samples?
> If you use a copyrighted work without authorization, the owner may be entitled to bring an infringement action against you. There are circumstances under the fair use doctrine where a quote or a sample may be used without permission. However, in cases of doubt, the Copyright Office recommends that permission be obtained.
