Re: Changing the Rules...
I was not at the last CAIP meeting, but as far as I know there has been no endorsement by CAIP to repatriate IP registery. There was some discussion a year on doing this and CANARIE even offered to partly fund the costs of developing the registery. But I believe a consensus arose that it would be far more valuable for Canada to participate more actively in North American registery bodies such as ARIN. We would have a lot more influence on registery issues if we participate in North American forum rather than building our own services.
