Blocking Amazon Sample music

Is there a way of blocking the sample tracks on Amazon.

We are seeing students at our school playing the 30 second clips of explicit songs.

This can be a problem in a classroom!

Hello,

You might be able to use the URL filter if you can tell what the URL's are. Also what about blocking Amazon altogether? You can also see if there are special applications that are used and block those. Just test from a known IP and watch the traffic logs.

@HWAAcademy,

If you are decrypting the traffic it should show up as the app amazon-music which you can just outright block, without decrypting traffic I'm not sure that ID will actually show up. A quick test of the URLs in North America show the following, as a warning I have no idea how these three domains would effect normal amazon traffic. 

fls-ns.amazon.com

m.media-amazon.com

music.amazon.com/gp/dmusic/cloudplayer
