Following an initial announcement earlier this month, ARIN now releases 
a modified version of the Legacy Registration Services Agreement 
incorporating suggestions from the community.

The Legacy RSA is offered to those organizations and individuals in the 
ARIN service region who hold legacy Internet number resources not 
covered by any other Registration Services Agreement with ARIN. A legacy 
number resource is an IPv4 address or Autonomous System number that was 
issued by an Internet Registry (InterNIC or its predecessors) prior to 
ARIN's inception on Dec. 22, 1997.

Legacy holders who sign the Legacy RSA are guaranteed the same 
registration services afforded to organizations that sign the standard 
Registration Services Agreement (RSA). There is a $100 annual 
maintenance fee associated with the Legacy RSA, which may be waived if 
an organization voluntarily returns unused address space to ARIN.

ARIN will not reclaim unutilized address space from legacy holders who 
sign this RSA. If a legacy holder chooses not to sign the Legacy RSA, 
ARIN has no plans to "take away" their legacy resources. This Legacy RSA 
also contractually promises that ARIN Internet number resource policies 
adopted after the contract is signed will not lessen the Legacy RSA 
address holder's contract rights.

To view the Legacy RSA, complete the Legacy application or view the FAQ, 
please see http://www.arin.net/registration/legacy/

Anyone needing information about legacy space in general or the Legacy 
RSA can call the Registration Services Help Desk at +1-703-227-0550 or 
send e-mail to hostmaster at arin.net. If you have legal questions, 
contact ARIN General Counsel, Steve Ryan, at sryan at mwe.com.
