So...that fee I pay every year for said address space does not keep me
a member during the 'year' I don't get more address space?

To quote:

	Membership with ARIN is open to any individual or entity and
	is offered regardless of whether the entity receives address
	space directly from ARIN. Subscription customers --
	i.e. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that are allocated IP
	addresses from ARIN -- are extended membership at no
	additional cost to their subscription fee. Organizations that
	are not subscription customers are invited to join ARIN and
	are charged an annual membership fee of $500.

So, the statement that Mury may not be a member would be wrong :)

By default, any ISP with direct allocation from ARIN is a member
according to what I read above.
