Anyone use singingfish.com? Seems pretty cool but they don't seem to bother with metadata (ID3 tags, etc.) so the results information is pretty lacking. I started seeing referers in my logs from there and went lookin'.

I wonder what will happen when people start using it to find illegal copyrighted music. And one should be aware that once you post a link somewhere these kinds of engines will find it. It also seems to be crawling directories, so even if you post a link to your own song, but there are others ("illegal" ones) in that same directory, it may find them. So I guess the lesson is to set your site to disallow directory listings, etc.
