Hi David,

Since when? That was a 2008 assignment.

More importantly: why not? What business is it of ARIN's what the
legal structure of the entity requesting resources is? They're
supposed to make assignments based on technically justified need,
right? If the justification is present and the registrant is legally
capable of entering into a contract, what's the problem?

If I need another AS number for something, give me one good reason why
ARIN should say no merely because I'm an individual.
