NAIPR Message

FCC and ARIN

Evidently, the FCC is considering taking on the
IP address management function.

Because they understand radio spectrum and
other number oriented things the IP address
allocation aspects of the InterNIC fit their
agency better than the domain name issues
which are loaded with trademark issues.

Can someone from ARIN confirm whether the
reason to split IP management from domain
management is to move IPs to the FCC and
domains to the PTO or the USPS ?

This would allow the NSF to exit...
