In other news, The Jesus and Mary Chain and Robert Fripp are among the artists who have launched a lawsuit against the PRS over songwriter royalties.

The case is centred around how the organisation handles royalties from live performances, with the artists accusing the PRS of levying high administration costs for smaller songwriters while giving preferential treatment to bigger acts.

The group of songwriters have joined forces with PACE Rights Management, a global operation that covers direct licensing of live public performance rights (the right to publicly perform a composer’s music and/or lyrics by way of live performance), in the case.

The group are also pushing for the right of music writers and publishers to efficiently direct license their live public performance rights, without having to go through the PRS.
