How about if each company would have to make their case, based on the greatest number of attachment points to a particular area? They could show they have a plurality of elements linking them to ARIN's region rather than to any other region (such as a majority of their end-users being present in that region and/or it makes sense operationally to submit the request to ARIN because of the presence of a majority of its equipment located in that region, and/or other attachment elements to be defined).

An organization is some number of people acting on concert towards a
common goal. One is an acceptable number. Given Citizens United and
the history of similar rulings, I'm pretty sure I can make that claim
stick.

Besides which, I presume ARIN doesn't refuse to do business with sole
proprietorships. A sole proprietorship has no legal existence separate
from the single individual who owns it. With minor exceptions (Bob's
Bait and Tackle can't get married or adopt children) a proprietorship
is legally synonymous with its owner.

What else ya got? :)

Hi John,

That's a fair question. I hope I don't mischaracterize the ITU's
position when I say they think a strictly regionalized registry system
is detrimental to business in exactly this manner.  They would have
themselves designated as a registry with worldwide scope in order to
serve these interests among others.

I'd offer this answer: if we want to continue as a system of regional
registries then it's generally appropriate for a multinational
organization get acquire the number resources it deploys in each
region from that region's registry. One network. Five suppliers, whose
goods have geographical constraints on their use.

If a system of regional registries is no longer indicated, that's a
much bigger topic of discussion which we shouldn't back-door by having
ARIN unilaterally act as registry to the world.

Regards,
Bill Herrin

Hi Gary,

Did I miss the text which exempts this draft from the exercise of NRPM
section 12.2.c and d?

Bill - 

We have no problem dealing with sole proprietorships; they are
organizations and can receive assignments.  Note that the number
resources are still assigned in such cases to the organization
(i.e. in the name of the sole proprietorship) not the individual.

FYI,

I don't see this being significantly different than gaming the "operational needs" requirement. I think the issue here is establishing a policy basis upon which violations, when detected, can be addressed. If it is discovered that someone is getting addresses to stockpile them for later sale, ARIN policy exists to allow ARIN to revoke those addresses.  This draft policy is saying that if someone is getting addresses for use outside ARIN's region, there would be a policy to allow ARIN to address that issue.

And, FWIW, I'll note that both AfriNIC and LACNIC (the remaining RIRs that have not gone into "last /8" policy) require companies to demonstrate in-region legal status and network usage.

Wait, I liked my grandfather... :) (sorry, not sure what an 'anti-grandfather clause is)

A traceroute would only satisfy an initial test.  Trivially easy to set one up, get your allocation, and then move the network to where you really wanted it.

Just like ARIN follows up on the utilization requirement?

Maybe they have a way to test and enforce their requirement.  If so perhaps it is a model we should pattern after.

Anti-grandfather means that the restrictions should equally apply to existing allocations, and current allocations that are operating outside of the ARIN region should be required to obtain allocations from their region and return the ARIN allocation.  Old allocations should not have a 'grandfather' exemption.  We would probably need to forgive their latest set of fees.
It would be onerously difficult to separate the pre and post allocations for enforcement.

Yes. However, if this subterfuge was noticed, the policy would give ARIN the capability to do something about it (if necessary), just like other ARIN policies.

> Just like ARIN follows up on the utilization requirement?  

I've been told ARIN has revoked address space for violation of policy.

> Anti-grandfather means that the restrictions should equally apply to existing allocations, and current allocations that are operating outside of the ARIN region should be required to obtain allocations from their region and return the ARIN allocation.  

My understanding of the policy proposal was that it was to apply to future allocations because the out-of-region requests appear to be increasing with the exhaustion of various RIR free pools.  Historically, it has been ... challenging to retroactively apply policy to pre-existing allocations.  If such retroactive application were desired (not going to comment one way or another on that aspect), I'd suggest it should be a different policy proposal.
