But as a membership organization, shouldn't we endeavor to avoid
litigation, both for the organization and for the members? We are
pooling our resources to manage addresses and that entails pooling
risk. A vibrant transfer market requires trust. Providing a mechanism
to instill trust in the transactions would seem to be key. The LRSA
does not instill trust.
