Re-affirming my previous support for option #3 listed in 2014-2.

For 2014-9, I strongly support the removal of the utilization request
during 8.2 transfers. Keeping accurate registry information is vital for
all of us. Knowing internal corporate council as well as I do, they
themselves can make an 8.2 internal transfer process quite painful for
those of running the technologies of a company if they see anything that
they interpret as risk to the continued operations of the business. To them
an external party seeking information about internal operations (such as
utilization levels of any resource relied on to do business) is a potential
risk either on an immediate or future basis, whether there are direct
actions such as reclamation currently allowed or not.

Section 6 of the RSA is certainly interpreted by myself and others as net
new addresses being transferred (or allocated) into an organization and not
for 8.2 transfers that should be to clean up registry information as
corporate structure change. Just because an organization (let's say AOL for
a random example) merged with Time Warner, Inc. (with 60% of the shares
going to AOL shareholders, BTW) and then later the new entity spins the
independent AOL subsidary back out as a standalone company, does not mean
that the new standalone AOL entity is in anyway requesting additional
addresses through transfer (or new allocation) when they simple try and
update their records from their legacy name/entity to their new name/entity
via a Name Change and/or then an 8.2 transfer.

I understand some companies may use the process of spinning of an entity,
bundling assets within that entity, and then selling it and requesting an
8.2 transfer; but it isn't like this is a new concept solely for the
transfer of IP addresses. Whether it is for the other IP (Intellectual
Property, patents, publishing rights, etc) or other assets (manufacturing
plants, distribution networks, etc) this isn't exactly an uncommon
occurrence in the world of corporate structure and finance.

If the ARIN community is still concerned that we need to place some limits
on buying companies with nothing but IP addresses in them, then I would
also support a re-definition of "Name Change" for organizations that makes
it clear that a Name Change can be used if the vast majority of assets are
transferred along with the actual merger, acquisition, or divestiture. Then
using the same example of AOL & Time Warner, just because AOL didn't keep
their private jets on the spin out, everything else transfers. It also
didn't change what AOL was before, during, or after the years in the
wilderness with Time Warner.

These views are my own and I believe they benefit/apply to the entire
community, but certainly my insights have been derived from my own personal
experiences.
