Can you be more specific?
If you are referring to Owen's remark that anyone can make use of any IP
addresses that they wish in the configuration of their own equipment, I
am unaware of any framework which would allow enforcement of a federal
order which specified that "thou shall not configure equipment with IP
address block x.y.z/nn, because exclusive use of it in configuration
files of all devices in the global Internet has been given to party ABC"
It is an interesting exercise to consider how such a contractual right
could ever be provided, given the distributed nature of the Internet.
