Something to do with British collecting society PRS (Performing Rights Society) over ‘black box’ royalties.
Commenting on the claim, Rowntree said: “I’ve agreed to be class representative because musicians’ royalties, perhaps to the tune of hundreds of millions of pounds, have been paid to the wrong people. It’s because of bad data and processes, and in today’s digitally connected world, there’s no excuse for either.”
PRS has more than 165,000 members, most of which are songwriters and its role it to collect royalties direct from licensees in the UK (such as television broadcasters, radio stations, restaurants, and bars) who play the musical works of PRS members in the UK public.
Looks like he's getting busy with this and the labour candidate
