MSN has stated they're going to continue using Overture . . . for now. It seems like they'd rather not help Yahoo make money in the long term so keep an eye on that scene.
Tenyque, MSN has stated that they're going to phase out their featured listings - as in the ones where they were selling space above the Overture listings directly to advertisers. They probably need to honor some contracts so they'll phase out over time. However, they also use that space to feature some of their own products and I'd expect they'll continue to do that.
smeyer56, what do you have against paying for traffic? There's a big difference between being in a prominent sponsored spot vs. hanging onto the bottom of the page. If you can turn a positive ROI on the terms relevant to your business, do it!

We understand that you have recently inquired about your listings not appearing on MSN. While we try to give our advertisers maximum exposure for their search listings, our affiliate partners ultimately decide which listings will be displayed on their sites. Each of our affiliate implementations are different, which means every term may not appear on various search engines, which we state in our terms and conditions.
In the case of MSN, only listings for selected terms relating to the following general categories are displayed:
.... and it goes on with personal details after that. I thought it was interesting how MSN only displays Overture listings in those categories. Since all of my sites have to do with information and not products, that must be why they are excluded.
I guess this makes Inktomi all the more important if you want to be found in MSN.
