What does spam have to do with IP addresses?

How is the RIR any more responsible than the vendor who sells someone a router?

...or the software company who provides the email software?

...or the power company that sells the electricity?

This seems a very strange way of looking at the problem.

And what happens to all the non-spamming customers of an ISP who has their addresses revoked on the basis that a another customer spams? Will each of those innocent customers have a potential lawsuit?
