Should DoubleClick Fear Google?

John Batelle’s post More On GoogleClick: It Will Be Free, And Partners Worry [1] says that:

“From a source who is in a position to know, news that Google’s DoubleClick competitor [2] will be … free for all to use. Like Analytics [3]. Think about that for a moment. How did Microsoft kill Netscape? Yup, made the browser free. How will Google try to own the entire ad serving biz? Make it free…..” read more [1]

Google defintely wants into this space. In fact Google may even buy DoubleClick [4]. Nevertheless, Google Analytics hasn’t killed the Web Analytic vendors because the value of Web Analytics isn’t in the application but what you do with it.

Are you a DoubleClick customer? Would you use Google’s competitive application if it was free?
