[arin-ppml] [arin-announce] [Fwd: ARIN-prop-132: ISP Sub-assignments Do Not Require Specific Customer Relationships]

While I do not know if this proposal is necessary I have to support the spirit of this proposal.  Many (not I) fought hard to make sure that an IP address market could exist to make netblocks saleable and policy now supports that attribute.  Now that the policy is in place we have to accept the ancillary attributes that come with it.

If one can permanently sell something one is also able to temporarily sell (lease or rent) something.  In worst case one can sell something with an agreement it will be sold back for a lesser fee after some period of time.

I do not feel it is in ARIN's purview to dictate the nature of the relationship between me and my "customers".

The effect this has on IPv6 deployment is a side issue.

> Proposal Originator: Benson Schliesser
> 
> Proposal Version: 1
> 
> Date: 11 February 2011
> 
> Proposal type: modify
> 
> Policy term: permanent
> 
> Policy statement:
> 
> Section 4.2.1.1 of the NRPM shall be modified to read:
> 
> "ARIN allocates blocks of IP addresses to ISPs for the purpose of
> reassigning that space to their customers. ARIN does not limit
> reassignment by ISPs to their customers based on any criteria except
> those that are explicitly described in the NRPM. An ISP is solely
> responsible for determining whether an organization is a customer for
> the purposes of reassignment under this policy."
> 
> Rationale:
> 
> This policy proposal is intended to permit an ISP to enter into
> reassignment relationships with anybody they deem to be a customer.
> Under this proposal, ARIN will not object to reassignment relationships
> because of their business nature. This specifically permits the
> reassignment of IPv4 addresses in "lease" relationships between an ISP
> and its customers, amongst others.
> 
> Timetable for implementation: immediately
