Hi John,


I suggest changing the language in the proposed RSA section 7.

Delete sections (b) and (c) and rename section (d) as section (b).

Change “accordance with Policy” to “accordance with the Policies” to match the language of other sections.


Section 7 would then read:


Holder acknowledges and agrees that: (a) the Included Number Resources are not property (real, personal,

or intellectual) of Holder; and (b) Holder will transfer or receive Included Number Resources in accordance with the Policies.

   From your message, I would surmise that these changes to 7(a) and 7(d), in and of 

   themselves, are not sufficient in your view to address the issue?



The result of the changes is a Trojan Horse for any legacy holder, IMO.

The RSA comes in as if it were covering only specific access, and only upon deeper inspection does the signer realize he has given up all property rights, now and in the future, of all resources.

I ask again, what is the legal purpose for the generality of those clauses (7b and 7c) in the context of an agreement covering a specific an defined set of number resources?

And by context, I mean immediate literal context, where these clauses are bracketed by similar clauses which are not so general?


Mike - 


The language in section 7 reflects ARIN’s existing RSA and LRSA agreements; the purpose

of the consultation is to gather feedback on a set of changes which have been suggested by

the community in the past and which ARIN is considering moving forward with.


If you support ARIN moving to the new agreements (or not), it would helpful to make your

views known.  If there are additional changes that you feel are necessary, please provide

some suggested language for those changes.
