I bet Google and Yahoo would have the PR issues of The Pirate Bay if they put a big-ass pirate flag on their site, and the majority of their search engine content was designed to point you to illegal or grey-legal content.
You can't compare Yahoo and Google to The Pirate Bay. They are not even in the same ballpark. Yahoo and Google are trying to run a search engine, and it would be impossible to filter every link they encounter for the possibility of linking illegal content.
Simply, the Pirate Bay's focus is to provide links to large files. A good portion of those large files probably shouldn't be distributed without a license. Google and Yahoo by lack of exclusion to link to copyrighted content. The Pirate Bay was designed to link to copyrighted content, and does it by inclusion. As evidence... the big-ass pirate flag.
