Agreed...  From http://www.hulu.com/terms:

Your Responsibilities. In order for us to keep the Hulu Services safe
and available for everyone to use, we all have to follow the same rules
of the road. In general, we need for everyone to use the Hulu Services
for lawful and appropriate purposes only. Your commitment to this
concept is critical. More specifically, you agree not to use the Hulu
Services in a way that:
# uses technology or other means to access the Hulu Services that is not
authorized by Hulu (including disabling or circumventing any mechanisms
for preventing the unauthorized reproduction or distribution of the Hulu
# accesses the Hulu Services through any automated system, including
"robots," "spiders," or "offline readers" (other than public search
engines for the sole purpose of, and solely to the extent necessary for,
creating publicly available search indices — but not caches or archives
— of the Hulu Services);

Violating Terms of Service is /not/ what the Free in Free and Open
Source Software is all about.
