"MR. RYAN: I've thought a little bit about what a stick might look like
here. So for example, it's very clear to me that denial of service by ARIN
is legally permitted. In other words, I don't believe we, as the non-profit
trying to carry out the community's wishes, have a duty to provide free
services for legacy address holders. And the denial of those free services
to legacy address holders pursuant to their lack of agreement is perfectly
permitted, in my judgment, as a matter of law."
