"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."
