[arin-ppml] Draft Policy ARIN-2013-6: Allocation of IPv4 and IPv6 Address Space to Out-of-region Requestors - Revised Problem Statement and Policy Text

As the author of the original DRAFT policy proposal, I'd like to reiterate the original intent of the policy: to enable ARIN staff to validate/verify requestors of address space who establish a "shell company" in the US for the sole purpose of acquiring ARIN resources. ARIN has historically required legal incorporation within the region. Due to the depletion of IPv4 there has been a significant increase in out-of-region requestors, and they are returning often (every three weeks) to request larger blocks. ARIN staff does not have the capability or mechanisms in place to verify customer usage, nor to verify/validate physical contact information for these out-of-region entities.
If ARIN staff is unable to validate/verify requestors contact information or customer usage, enforcement of ARIN contractual obligations is significantly impeded.
Law enforcement simply wants to ensure that mechanisms are in place for verification/validation of ARIN's customers to avoid allocation to organizations/individuals who may intend to utilize IP address space for nefarious purposes, and that should this occur, accurate pointers (requested via subpoena) are available from ARIN for law enforcement to proceed with a criminal investigation.

I agree that ARIN IP's must be reserved for in region use.
