sponsored vs adwords clickers

is there a difference?

From what I have read in this forum, it's been pretty much established that SE results do not directly compete with adwords (that is, it's good to have high ranking and adwords -
some people will click on one, some on the other).
What I would like to know is whether there is a similar
distintion between people who click on sponsored listings
and those that click on adwords. In other words if I
managed to have my adword migrate "up-north" (see a post
in this forum on how to do that), am I losing a % of
potential customers who do click on adwords but not on
premium listing. Obviously, my ad can not be at 2 places at
the same time (premium listing and side bar), but this could
be circumvented by using different domain names (or would
Google frown on that?)

google most definitely frowns on this. Advertising multiple domains that are owned by the same person/company is not their cup of tea. They shut down one account if you get noticed.
