Not at all, your paying to be in the web search which is not at all affected by this. In the long run you'll probably actually get more coverage than you orginally paid for (that is when OV combines ATW/AV paid inclusion)
No problem, you paid for inclusion to the index serving ATW and all previous Fast partners. Nothing really has changed in that regard, only the company owning the Fast websearch division is now Overture.
I'm pretty positive Overture is going to get rid of the last remainders of the previous owners name soon. They have already announced a united PFI programme for AV and Ex-Fast index and partners.
Soon it's going to be ATW, the various Altavista sites, and of course all those portals, all with one index.

Thanks for the feedback. It really is confusing. To a point where sometimes you feel the engines are going out of their way not to disclose their inter-relationships and transactions, so people indeed sometimes join programs for which they are basically already getting the same coverage somewhere else...
