I personally know of several IP hosts who have violated intellectual genre, and (c) laws, having taken over people's Domains after providing service. There are other people out here who's entire IPv6 networks get hacked. People have related stories of losing information off of all their computers, mainframe, and all software licenses.

Rev Rachelle C.Navarro -
My apologies for not responding earlier, and do hope that this
response finds you well.
You are correct: We (the community participating on this list)
are ARIN. ARIN strives to maintain open participation and it
is fair to characterize those on this list as shaping how ARIN
accomplishes its mission.
The mission of ARIN is focused on the administration of the IP
address space in this region, and not per se on ensuring "safety
on the Internet" It is true that some aspects of administering
IP addresses will have implications for safety on the Internet,
but actually ensuring that outcome is a much bigger job requiring
many more participants and the balancing of various public policy
concerns of governments & law enforcement with due consideration
to civil society and human rights.
There is no central body which ensures "safety on the Internet"
but you can find the topic discussed at the "Internet Governance
Forum" (IGF), which is an open forum for multi-stakeholder policy
dialogue about the Internet, including public policy issues such
as sustainability, robustness, security, stability and development
of the Internet. You can find out more information on the IGF
here <http://www.intgovforum.org/> such how to participate in their
workshops and conferences (including remote participation options)
If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further,
please feel free to contact me directly at <jcurran at arin.net>
