Intrinsic or non-intrinsic value? It's an important distinction.
I worked for a large-ish ISP for over seven years and made multiple requests for IP space from ARIN in that time. My experience with this was not at all bad. I did not find it to be like pulling teeth to get the space. As long as the request documentation is in order, it was not too bad.Also, what about ARINS hardcore attitude making it near impossible to aquire ip space, even when you justify it's use? I have had nightmares myself as well as MANY of my collegues share similar experiences. I am having an issue right now with a UNIVERSITY in Mexico tryin to get ip's from the mexican counterpart.
I disagree with the notion that IP addresses are property.
