Google Adds Pirate Bay Domains to Censorship List

Oh no, no autocomplete for The Pirate Bay? How will people ever find the site now? roll eyes (sarcastic)

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.
