We explain how one can relate the Hochschild (co)homologies of Hopf algebras having equivalent tensor categories of comodules, in case the trivial module over one of the Hopf algebras admits a resolution by free Yetter-Drinfeld modules. This general procedure is applied to the quantum group of a bilinear form, for which generalizations of results by Collins, Hartel and Thom in the orthogonal case are obtained. It also will be shown that the Gerstenhaber-Schack cohomology of a cosemisimple Hopf algebra completely determines its Hochschild cohomology.
