Google has quietly expanded its list of censored search phrases with the addition of The Pirate Bay’s domain names. The blacklist prevents popular keywords from appearing in Google’s Instant and Autocomplete search services, while the pages themselves remain indexed. Although Google understands that there is no silver bullet to stop online copyright infringement, the search giant is convinced that the steps they’ve taken could help to decrease piracy.
Wasn't sure where to post this but, I have to say, does it even really matter at this point?

Damn near everyone knows about them (thank you media!) and those who don't will hear about it from someone else. It's very easy to type in an address bar.

It's probably not Google themselves, but some MPAA, RIAA or whatever that made Google block those.
