Re: Can a Customer take their IP's with them? (Court says yes!)
The TRO is irrelevant, The courts made the wrong decision, did anyone actually think they would have a clue?
Here is the solution:
Black ball the /24 that the customer is taking with them. Black hole any AS that announces that /24 'illegally'. The courts don't need to follow the RFC or even know what the acronym stands for. The Internet should follow the RFC and should come to the defense of NAC and the Internet routing table. Any AS that picks up that customer and announces the netblock gets their entire AS routed to Null0. Pretty simple really, doesn't matter what the courts do. They don't have jurisdiction over me or any other ISP for that matter. They cant tell me what I do to my routers.
The result is NAC removes the offending /24 from their announcements and follows the TRO so they don't get in trouble. The Internet heals around the courts TRO by rejecting that /24 from anyone else. The customer must change to their own IPs or they lose access completely.
