---- Italian Antitrust Authority Investigating Adsense Payment Policy

Hi Lame_Wolf. Curious that, so far, no noise has been made of this.
It's perfectly sensible for Google to pay out in GBP; they will receive payments in GBP, so why suffer exorbitant currency transfer charges both ways? It would also seem reasonable for Google to make a charge--or pass on any charges that they suffer--on currency transfers. Then come the steps too far:
No disclosure on charges.
No disclosure on rates.
No option of transfer from $$$ payments to GBP.
Is Google even licensed for currency conversion? I guess that there are rules enforced at a federal level on those that are, with the option for customers to choose another operator if dissatisfied with the rates offered. But not for us.
