Like I said, it's not a question of distribution, it's a question of professional and non-professional capacity. Doujin circles and labels belong in the doujin publisher type, the same as before.

Remember, it's the publisher type field now, not release type. If you need an even simpler way to distinguish the releases, artists who release professional work under their own name are "Independent" publishers. Otherwise they're labeled as "commercial" or "doujin" accordingly. (Yes, this implies the "Independent" type will apply mostly to western artists -- but I have a feeling that will change over the years.)

All I've done is separate the "Doujin" and "Indie" type -- and this is after feedback from an artist.
