Jew or Not Jew

App creator Johann Levy developed the Jewish celebrity database to be "recreational." French anti-racism groups felt differently and contacted Apple about removing the app from its French App Store due to it violating laws enacted after World War 2 banning the compilation of people's personal info without consent. Levy responded to the ban by saying, "I'm not a spokesman for all Jews, but as a Jew myself I know that in our community we often ask whether a such-and-such celebrity is Jewish or not... For me, there's nothing pejorative about saying that someone is Jewish or not." Morale of the story: respect the law and other people's privacy.
