Jan Kraemer, Lukas Wiewiorra, and Christof Weinhardt, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology , have published Net Neutrality: A Progress Report, at 37 Telecommunications Policy 794. Here is the abstract.
This paper is intended as an introduction to the debate on net neutrality and as a progress report on the growing body of academic literature on this issue. Different non-net neutrality scenarios are discussed and structured along the two dimensions of network and pricing regime. With this approach, the consensus on the benefits of a deviation from the status quo as well as the concerns that are unique to certain non-net neutrality scenarios can be identified. Moreover, a framework for policy decisions is derived and it is discussed how the concept of neutrality extends to other parts of the Internet ecosystem.
