Note, this means legitimate acquisition of the entire functioning entity, which is not
the hijackings to which I was referring.

The transfer of the addresses as would be accomplished under 8.3 to a third party
without the transfer of the original resource holder, OTOH, would, IMHO, not be a
legitimate successor in interest and would be, essentially a hijacking unless said
transfer was processed through ARIN in compliance with 8.3.

In this case, apparently (according to John), Nortel acquired the predecessor
in interest organizations and did actually register those through 8.2 transfers
with ARIN.
