This article is a part of Believe's Audio Content Guidelines.
Reminder: Cover artworks are mandatory. Deliver the original artwork whenever possible.
Artwork/Metadata Mismatch. Information displayed on the artwork should match exactly the release’s metadata (i.e. Artist’s Name, Release Titles, etc.). Note that displaying information in alphabet/language that is different to metadata’s but matches it in meaning is considered a mismatch.
Misuse of Parental Advisory/Explicit Content logo. Don’t use the Parental Advisory/Explicit Content logo on the artwork unless one of the tracks is marked as explicit. Note that the "Restricted logo" is solely used for R rated movies, not music.
DMS names and logos. Artworks containing Digital Music Store names or logos are not accepted. Do not display DMS names or logos even if the release will be distributed on these stores.
Misleading artworks / Missing content. Artworks referencing information or content (i.e. “video included”) that is not included in the release are not accepted. Do not display information that may mislead a customer in any way on the artwork.
References to physical or digital product. Artworks containing references to physical support or digital product (i.e., “CD”, “Cassette”, "mp3", etc.) are not accepted.
Information limited in time. Artworks containing terms and notions that can be true only for a certain period (i.e., “New”, “Latest”, “Coming Soon”, etc.) are not accepted.
Pricing tags / Barcodes. Artworks containing prices in any currency or barcodes (even for design purposes) are not accepted.
Rights limitation. Artworks that forbid or limit distribution rights in any way are not accepted (i.e., phrases like “All rights reserved. No part of this publication may be reproduced, distributed, or transmitted in any form or by any means”).
Up-selling / Advertising. Artworks that up-sell or advertise another product are not accepted.
Contact information. Artworks containing contact information of any sort (phone numbers, e-mail, etc.) or web-links are not accepted.
