actually i don’t know what should happen in this case, and before i answer anything wrong, what would be the correct way of handling this?

Looks like that label entity got hijacked by another Eclipse Records
Eclipse Records from Arizona
Eclipse Records from New Jersey

I’d restore the original label, create a new one for the other and change release labels accordingly.

ok, i will ask him to reverse his edit (https://musicbrainz.org/edit/74021712). also he has auto approval.

Well, it’s rather a messy one. The label was added referring to Discogs page of the Eclipse Records in Arizona: https://musicbrainz.org/edit/6702035
A minute later the same editor added also a link to the official home page but unfortunately they got it wrong and it pointed to Eclipse Records in New Jersey: https://musicbrainz.org/edit/6702052
So could have been kinda honest hijack.
I haven’t checked any of the releases listed there now, if the majority of them belong to NJ-based one maybe it’s easier (i.e. less editing) to just re-create the Arizona label?
