address space garage sale (RE: Request for assistance)

This type of post should be a wake-up call for all of those who say we don't
need more space.  The moment the cost of space will go up, people will look for
an alternative to paying more.  I guess we'll see how much or little the market
will bear.

Wonderful inflation.

Subject: Request for assistance

This is not intended to be SPAM, but a legitimate request for advice.  An
organization I work for, holds a registered full class 'B' address range.
Since we are moving to an RFC 1918 based addressing scheme, we are looking to
"sell" the rights to utilize our class 'B'.  Having no experience with this, I
can only assume that perhaps a secondary tier ISP may have an interest in this,
but I have no idea where to begin, or if this has value at all.  Can someone
provide me with some advice relative to what types of organizations might be
interested in such a purchase, who they might be, and any other pertinent
information.  I'm aware that ARIN provides this type of thing for a price, that
they publish on their Web site.  I'd like to reiterate that I'm not looking for
buyers through this forum, but advice on how I might go about pursuing this.
