EU Cookie Law compliance when using AddThis buttons

To get my website compliant with the EU Cookie Law I need to block the AddThis cookies from being set when including the Facebook LIKE etc buttons at the foot of each post.

I have seen a javascript provided by AddThis that does this (ie prevents the tracking cookie being set) but it is not so obvious where to include this, since all the AddThis stuff is set up form the CS code behind,  so the AddThis Javascript is not hardwired into to any page.

Has anyone solved this problem?  

Note: since the AddThis cookie is used for tracking by third parties, it definitely falls into the EU Cookie Law's purview.

Thanks for any ideas on this!
