Anyone is free to set up a system other than the Internet, any time they want, based on any addressing system they want. The Internet is the system of people who choose to cooperate. Anyone who doesn't feel like cooperating is free to do whatever they want; they just won't be on the Internet, they'll be on some other network of people who don't cooperate. Which might be a small one. Since people are, generally speaking, sociable critters who like to cooperate to get things done. The existence of a few outlying sociopaths, in a world population of nearly seven billion, should come as no surprise, and has no deleterious effect, provided normal people don't allow them to erode the usual level of trust and cooperation.
There is no international law that requires participation in the Internet. We participate in the Internet because we want to. Anyone who doesn't want to participate is welcome not to.
