Good luck with that.

You did catch the Microsoft patent for CAPTCHAs / HIPs for embedding the 
pattern in an ad?
Not to mention that TV ads now are often more entertaining than the 
shows they interrupt.

I think that it's odd that you have to work so hard to find things when 
you want them, when companies work so hard to get you ads when you don't 
want them.
