Does anyone else feel like the Palo Alto URL Filtering categories "Music" and "Entertainment and Arts" have a lot of potential for confusing crossover?
Name: Entertainment and Arts
I agree there can be some cross-over, but it seems Palo is trying to make a greater distinction that other Web Content Filtering services.
While I believe that BC's filtering services stomp the poo poo out of Palo's I think the distinction does make sense.
Here's a quick grab at what I'm seeing for "Music"
It seems that the latter is more regarding the delivering of content. From what I can tell a lot of what I'm seeing as "Music" is really "Apple" stuff.
That's the thing, the Palo Alto definition of their Music category specifically says that it's NOT for streaming content. If it was (similar to Blue Coat's "Radio/TV Streams" categories) I wouldn't have a problem with it.
We don't allow iTunes in our environment, and this is what I'm seeing for the "Music" category ( Rehearsal studios, song lyrics, someone buying tickets to "The King and I" on Broadway...)
