Hm, they may have changed something, but a quick-and-dirty MP3 finder that I made using that trick still seems to work as well as it ever did. (Which is to say not very! But it does find stuff.)

This suit is like suing Google for allowing you to search for "apache index MP3 name-of-band." (Many universities automatically share students' home directories on the Web, and a lot of students kept their MP3 collections in their home directories. So this trick looked for directory indexes of MP3 files auto-generated by Apache.)

Unfortunately this trick doesn't work anymore, as Google no longer seems to index those sorts of pages.
