CANNES-WINNING GREY SINGAPORE APP TO SAVE REFUGEES CALLED OUT AS FAKE
An app that won a bronze at Cannes this week has been found to be fake by internet users that interrogated the technology, resulting in Apple removing it from the app store.
The ‘I SEA’ app by Grey Singapore’s Grey for Good arm, in collaboration with Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS), claimed to help locate potential refugee boats by sending users of the app information and images to feedback on.

TAYLOR SWIFT, KATY PERRY, U2 AND OTHERS LAUNCH FRESH ATTACK ON YOUTUBE IN OPEN LETTER
A host of A-list musicians and major record labels have signed a letter calling for a reform of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).
Organised by music manager Irving Azoff, who has previously taken issue with the Google-owned video platform, the petition has attracted support from dozens of artists including Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Paul McCartney and U2 as well as Universal Music, Sony Music and Warner Music.
The letter is addressed to Congress and contends that YouTube and other tech companies provide a safe harbor for copyright infringement under the current DMCA laws.
While Azoff has himself been outspoken about YouTube and other platforms in the past, this is the first time celebrities and record labels have grouped together to mobilize support around the issue.
YouTube has previously argued that tools like it’s Content ID technology, which automatically deals with 99.5 per cent of copyright claims has helped generate $3bn for artists to date, and said that comparing the fees it pays artists to other higher-paying services like Spotify is like “comparing what a cab driver earns from fares to what they earn showing ads in their taxi.”
