Im working on a site that needs to show some of the items in its content in more than one category.
So, item X is shown in category A but I also need that content in category B.
Im thinking about a good way to solve this in order not to be duplicating content. And I would like your comments on previous experiences with this type of problem.
Main issue to solve:
1 The items URL
URLs in the site are www.domain.com/A/X
If I solve the second URL to be www.domain.com/B/X Id be duplicating content, so maybe I can unify URLs and solve it like: www.domain.com/items/X ... But how do I show the category name in the body of that page for that URL? How can I tell if the item is in category A or B?
2 Only some of the items need this double categorization will SEs overlook the duplicate content issue or am I still in trouble?

To complete the scene theres another problem I have to take care of.
The tech department is using this type of tracking in order to measure the effectiveness of the links in the Home page
[domain.com...]
The content of the home page is allways moving (like a news site)so they use this type of tracking in order to give the homepage administrator info on what content is popular on what section of the HomePage.
