> But focusing on your question of "who benefits"...  Prop 136 doesn't deal directly with address markets, but may help a legacy market emerge.  You mentioned brokers as benefiting, which is probably true.  But I would suggest that buyers and sellers would be the primary beneficiaries of a market.  Consider for example: regulated industries like health care that may need access to IPv4 addresses, developing economies around the world including those in regions with fewer addresses than the ARIN region, etc.  A market certainly brings with it a number of new fears, but would also have much benefit.

Transfer of space is already allowed in the ARIN region, and there are
discussions going on now which may lead to them being allowed
inter-RIR as well. So, all of the benefits to those with "extra" IPv4
addresses and those who need them are already built into the existing
system. The only thing missing today is the ability for "address
brokers" to get rich in the process.
