In that case, what about additional burden that ARIN carries for this additional info ?
Does ARIN require to verify the validity of Business License or TAX ID info ?
If ARIN doesn't verify, it is another meaningless information.
If they do, it will be a lot of burden.
Also, if somebody is trying to setup bogus company, probably he/she can setup bogus company registered in local TAX authority any way using proxy person or some people, who will be much thankful to get some money out of their name or identity.
So I think it is meaningless except that ARIN becoming more of investigation unit.
If ARIN doesn't use the info actively, why do they need to collect the information ?

The problem of people giving false information or setting up a
bogus company in order to acquire IP address space to send spam or
"USE" should be very simple to stop or at least reduce.
The information AIRN requests in order to apply for IP address space
should be expanded to include their business License information and
government TAX ID# or Tax exemption #. This can then be checked in
any country that ARIN provides IP address resources.
Even EDU or government departments are required to have a business
license and in all countries there is some form of TAX ID number.
Since their is not a country in North America that has not figured
out how to TAX every business in their respective countries thay all
have a TAX ID system were each business is give an individual Tax
number or ID. This information could then be checked to see if the
entity at least has a business licenses and TAX ID#. Then ARIN should
contact the business using the Address listed in the government
business license and tax ID information to verify that they are the
actual group requesting the IP address space. This is not a new
method most vendors use this method to verify that the company that
has made an order is actually the company they claim to be. In the
state of Virginia we had a large amount of people obtaining Drivers
licenses under a false name and address. In fact all of the 9/11
hijackers had Virginia Driver licensees. In order to prevent this
the Virginia Division of motor Vehicle registration now requires at
least two forms of government issued Identification in order to
obtain a driver license. Arin should basically do the same. Virginia
found that every person had a birth certificate and SSN number that
lives in the USA. You could also provide a Government issued Passport
or a Voter registration card as well. In the case of any ISP,
Government, EDU, or business attempting to apply for IP address space
their should be the same basic requirement of two forms of government
issued ID. In this case the universal ID would be a Business licence
and TAX ID#. This information even though it is public knowledge
would not have to listed in the public WHOIS information but used to
verify the Identity of the actual group applying for IP address space.
