      Description

      With iTunes and the like being increasingly used as a source for adding new releases, many fake labels are created daily for self-releases by users not aware that they should use [no label] instead.
      We should discourage them from doing it by prompting them with a confirmation box, something along the line of:

      The label you entered shares the name of the artist: if this is a white label release, an auto-release or any other "no label" release, please use the Special Purpose Label [no label] instead.

      [checkbox] I confirm that this is the label as it appears on the release.
