http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Counterfeiting_Trade_Agreement

The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) is a proposed plurilateral trade agreement for establishing international standards on intellectual-property-rights enforcement throughout the participating countries.[1] Its proponents describe it as a response "to the increase in global trade of counterfeit goods and pirated copyright protected works."[2] The scope of ACTA is broad, including counterfeit goods, generic medicines, as well as "piracy over the Internet".[

The agreement, which is being hammered out by Canadian trade negotiators, would completely override Canada’s domestic copyright policies. It reads like a wish list for the U.S. corporate lobby. It overrides any flexibility in WIPO implementation," says Angus. "It guts domestic copyright protections and imposes a mandatory 'three-strike' policy that would rob thousands of average Canadians from access to the internet.”

According to a friend, this bill got thrown out. i will have to investigate further, but for now borderlands.

EDIT: I've searched google a bit, and looked at that wikipedia article. signs point to no that it wasnt thrown out and that it is still there. IMO if they are going to put this through, make hulu accessible world wide.
