Blocking Illegal MP3's?
from the false-positives dept
A new product from MailZone is definitely going to cause a stir. It claims that it can distinguish legal MP3’s from illegal MP3’s in email attachments. If it determines that an attachment is illegal it will notify the system administrator or whoever the system is set to alert. This brings up a whole bunch of issues, most of which are discussed in the article. I fully expect that one of these days we’ll hear a story of an employee who was emailing a legal MP3 that for some reason wasn’t in the MailZone “acceptable” database and was fired for passing along stolen goods, or something equally ridiculous.
