    Re:The ARIN Litigation War Chest of Cash Opens Up

    "Determine whether the global and regional policies regarding the use of
    Internet Numbering Resources have been violated;"

    Watch as ARIN asserts itself to push ICANN out
    of the way. Note, ARIN is now taking on the "global"
    policy role.

    Stay tuned as the Number Resource Organization
    (NRO) [created by a couple of insiders] moves in
    to claim global control of ALL numbers. That is
    there in case people notice that ARIN used to
    claim to have just a few /8s, not the entire
    address space.

    Also note that ARIN always claimed they did not
    guarantee what they sold/leased/rented etc.
    would work or be useful, yet now, they have
    decided there are laws and they are the ruler
    that determines if those have been "violated".
    Translation, they plan to crush any ISP that
    breaks their cyber laws and then they can
    start to semi-guarantee what they sell/lease
    will sort of work, for a nice large fee of course.

    Speaking of fees, it is a little known fact
    that many ISPs pay NOTHING for their address
    space. Large carriers such as AT&T pay nothing.
    They do not buy via ARIN. Insiders are now trying
    to get ALL of the people to pay ARIN and if not
    ARIN the new NRO.

    Price-fixing discussions are also now in progress
    with the insiders. They are trying to prevent
    ISPs from heading over to a different region in
    the world to buy/lease blocks of cheap address
    space. The routers do not care where the block
    is from, that is an artificial arrangement used
    to fund the IANA thugs.
