ARIN-prop-174 Policies Apply to All Resources in the Registry

Proposal Originator: David Farmer

Proposal Version: 1.0

Date: 19 June 2012

Proposal type: Modify

Policy term: Permanent

Policy statement:

Add as a new paragraph at the beginning of Section 1;

ARIN is the Internet number registry for its service region and ARIN
number resource policies apply to all resources in the ARIN registry,
including those resources issued from a predecessor registry in the
Internet Registry system.

Rationale:

There is a perception by some that ARIN policy may not apply to legacy
resources. This proposal clarifies that ARIN policies apply to all
resources in the ARIN registry regardless if they are legacy-issued
resources.  ARIN was formed to give the users of IP numbers within North
American a voice in the policies by which they are managed and allocated
in the region.

Timetable for implementation:  Immediate
