   3. Proposal Version: 1.0
   4. Date: 4/26/2012
   5. Proposal type: new
   6. Policy term: permanent
   7. Policy statement:

Where ARIN must evaluate a LIR's IPv4 address utilization in order to
perform any duty, ARIN shall not compel the production of customer
identities for any customer holding a total of less than 8 IPv4
addresses unless all reasonable alternatives for verifying utilization
have been exhausted.

   8. Rationale:

Per http://lists.arin.net/pipermail/arin-ppml/2012-April/024523.html ,
ARIN believes the /29 border for identifying customers called out
seven distinct times in the NRPM applies only to publication of such
records. Author contends that the policy intention is and should be
that the identity of such small consumers of IP addresses remain a
private matter between the ISP and its customer.

   9. Timetable for implementation: immediate
