I do not see Overture as a threat to Google. Everybody I know sees Google as the best search on the Internet. Why did people leave AV? Because of poor search quality. I believe the same will happen for Overture. They should have stayed in thier little box. They posed no threat to Yahoo!, but now they're trying to expand, and thier partners aren't going to be happy about it.
The feedback I get from advertisers is that Overture isn't delivering the quality traffic that Google does. All of my associates have closed thier Overture accounts and turned to Google.
The Internet can still be a democracy - we vote with our money.
