You might want to first make sure you can't find a website for the company (which might have newer contact info), and make sure all the phone numbers are no longer working... looks like you've already done all that, though. If they have invalid contact info, you should also contact ARIN so that they can mark the information as invalid (include a copy of the bounce messages). Submitting them to rfc-ignorant.org might not be a bad idea as well. -- "Since when is skepticism un-American? Dissent's not treason but they talk like it's the same..."
