– The main channel and the topic channel have a different artist name.
– The artist has a considerable amount of non-original content on their channel.
– The artist hasn’t uploaded any content to their Owned & Operated channel.
– The artist hasn’t distributed to YouTube Music via DPM Network Music Distribution.
