      Description

      On digital platforms, sometimes releases will be listed with the artist's name in place of a label, or a placeholder assigned by a distributor (e.g. 123456 Records DK). To allot for this, some editors have been adding "imprints" to match. Someone said there's no guideline that says not to do either of these things, so here we are.

      Here's a sample update to the Special Purpose Label guidelines:
      If a digital release is listed with an artist's name in place of a label, or with a placeholder such as "XXXXXX Records DK", do not create a new label to match. Use [no label].
