[arin-ppml] Policy Proposal 2008-2 Discussed at ARIN Caribbean Sector Meeting
Policy Proposal 2008-2
IPv4 Transfer Policy Proposal
On 21 May, ARIN held a Caribbean Sector Meeting in Kingston, Jamaica, to
discuss active policy proposals in the ARIN region and gain a Caribbean
perspective on ARIN policies and procedures.
Leo Bicknell, as Chair of the Advisory Council, presented on the topic
of current policy, the history and rationale of this proposal, how the
Advisory Council came to author it, and an overview of the text. Other
members of the Board of Trustees and Advisory Council also provided
other background information for the attendees.
Meeting participants asked questions about ARIN's role in setting fees,
the possibility of market speculation, and what repercussions would come
from transfers made outside of ARIN. Another attendee commented that he
did not understand the problem the policy attempts to solve, as IPv6
deployment would be the better solution.
