Commercializing Captcha

Picture_43 So, here's my great branding/commercialism/capitalist captcha idea for the day:

Everyone has this stuff now. Comments, sign ups, it's everywhere. We only want people, not computers. But it's way way too hard to decipher the writing.

What we need is a centralized captcha server that everyone can use for free. And how would it be monetized, you ask?

Easy. Logos.

It might be for soup or a server or an airline...

Type the brand you see above, please.
