Indeed.  To be accurate:

In 2006, ARIN did not have an agreement with UUNET (or other legacy
address holders) which would give it authority over their specific 
legacy addresses.

What *exactly* would you allegedly be selling to Company A?  You 
have already indicated that it is not related to Whois, so do you
believe it is related to Company A's ability to use those numbers 
in the Internet?

> If Company A tried to route those addresses, would that be illegal?

Not to the best of my knowledge (regardless of the status at ARIN
and/or whatever Company A thinks they bought from you...)
