I'd rather have a headache now and get it over with, than having the MPEG-LA (a confirmed patent troll, I might add) explore my anus a few years from now.

I am very much in favour of keeping my anus unexplored, so I'm VERY happy with this move.

Indeed it's much healthier to get ass raped by Google because after that atleast the giant ad is blocking the hole.
