Is Net Neutrality Dead?

CNET’s Declan McCullagh thinks so. Here he blogs on 10 reasons why the issue has faded from the tech agenda. Still, count me among the skeptics. I agree that the Bush administration, the 700 MHz auction set-aside and the reticent Congress, contributed to the issue’s cooling from feverish pitch from just a few months ago, but a Democrat in the White House may embolden Congressional members like Rep. Edward Market (D-Mass.) and Sen. Byron Dorgan (D.-N.D.), who have so far seen one of their pet issues beaten back.
