Canada is thinking of joining other nations (including the U.S.) in taking Draconian measures to prevent piracy. The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), would give border guards the ability to check laptops, iPods and even cellular phones for content that infringes on copyright laws, such as ripped CDs and movies.

This is without a warrant or a court order, of course.

ACTA also proposes  forcing internet service providers to hand over personal information pertaining to "claimed infringement" or "alleged infringers" of copyrights. Again, without a warrant.

The agreement would create a governing and enforcement body separate from other international organizations like the World Trade Organization and the United Nations.
