So that contract I signed with ARIN isn't binding? http://www.arin.net/library/agreements/rsa.pdf "8. REVIEW OF APPLICANTS NUMBERING RESOURCES. ARIN may review, at any time, Applicants use of the previously allocated numbering resources or other Services to determine if Applicant is complying with this Agreement, the Policies, and using the Services for their intended purposes. Without limiting the foregoing, if Applicant is an Internet Service Provider, Applicant agrees that it will use the numbering resources solely for uses consistent with its application, including, for example, its internal infrastructure or to provide Internet access to its customer base. If ARIN determines that the numbering resources or any other Services are not being used in compliance with this Agreement, the Policies, or for purposes for which they are intended, ARIN may: (i) revoke the numbering resources, (ii) cease providing the Services to Applicant, or (iii) terminate this Agreement." And of utmost importance: "9. NO PROPERTY RIGHTS. Applicant acknowledges and agrees that the numbering resources are not property (real, personal or intellectual) and that Applicant shall not acquire any property rights in or to any numbering resources by virtue of this Agreement or otherwise. Applicant further agrees that it will not attempt, directly or indirectly, to obtain or assert any trademark, service mark, copyright or any other form of property rights in any numbering resources in the United States or any other country." Seems pretty clear to me. Andy --- Andy Dills Xecunet, Inc. www.xecu.net 301-682-9972 ---
