    Check this out. I came across a site that is using one of these. rather than filling out some random letters it shows you an ad for a product and you have to type something about the product to solve the captcha: http://solvemedia.com/publishers/

    SolveMedia has been around for a while now, and they're definitely gaining in popularity from what I've seen. Some forums are now using them, and several web 2.0s. Genius idea, wish I had thought of it first lol

    I agree, it's a great idea. Not that I like captachas, or ads for that matter, but you have got to respect the smart thinking behind this.

    Great concept, yet a bit of Googling shows that some of the users' testimonials tend to float around the fact that payout structures/ratios are horrible, and that it takes quite a while to be able to make it up to the payout threshold, which is measly $200. If any one cares to argument against this claim, go ahead - it will surely motivate new players to come into the market.

    I've never seen this before, but it's really a good idea.

    i filled one up just yesterday, it was an ad by 'evian'.
    the question captcha showed the logo of evian and the question was "write something about this company". I answered "water' which was correct.

    pretty innovative idea I'd say. Can be used for CPA offers with a twist I can think of.

    novel idea. can't easily be automated either, because the image itself has the answer. Way better than that RECAPTCHA bs that you can't even read.

    well, actually it would be easiest to automate since the ads are static and not generated using random content so a hash of each image coupled with the corresponding answer would solve them. They don't always show the ads though sometimes you get normal captchas.

    I wonder if there is any payout for that kind of captcha solution, do someone know?

    If that one for Sony is legit, that's awesome. Brilliant marketing that involves the people.
    I wish they incorporated things like that into sites like Youtube that now have commercials.

    This has been around for years. I remember when I first started Internet marketing, I began with webs.com. That site had this 3 years ago.
