Expiration
STAVRA's not the only thing fixin' to expire as the year ends. John Thune (R, SD) is likely to take over this committee as Jay Rockefeller heads for the hills of West Virginia (or wherever Rockefellers go when they retire from the Senate) in early January. So for at least next two years, Markey and Blumenthal et al. move into minority role. Then-Congressman Markey was one of the original promoters of CableCard regulation back in 1996, so his continued advocacy is no surprise. It just hasn't turned into the equivalent of the FCC's "Carterphone" decision, as hoped for. Don't think it ever will.

Regulation
Sounds like a lot of regulatory scrutiny. These kinds of things are supposed to be about consumer protections, but this might just go too far. I'm not quite clear how this helps customers other than it costing them more money in the long run.
