Remove Attribution Widget from Blogger

The 'Attribution' widget is that widget in the footer that says 'Powered By Blogger'. Blogger's terms and conditions do not allow to remove this widget from the blog. Although presence of this widget is little bit of annoying. If you've ever tried to remove this widget, you may have noticed that this widget is locked into your blog i.e. if you go to 'Layout' panel, you'll find that you can't move (and hence can't remove) this widget. Even if you click 'Edit' on 'Attribution' widget, a new window appears which doesn't contain a 'Remove' button on it (displayed below).
