[arin-ppml] About needs basis in 8.3 transfers

Elvis,



So does that mean a US based ISP such as QxC wanted / needed an additional IPv4 allocation we could simply go to RIPE and get the IPv4 we want/need?


Thank you,
John W. Von Stein

Hi David,



even further... for those that do not know yet, any legal or private person can become a member of the RIPE NCC while the ARIN policies/procedures still require a company to have a legal presence in the ARIN region in order to request resources.



And, btw.. have I already mentioned that the RIPE Community has completely removed the demonstrated need from their policy? I think I was only discussing this matter in the APNIC mailing lists and maybe those subscribed to this mailing list should also be aware of.



cheers,

elvis

There's a further argument that's been made that the time for regional IRs may be passed (past?) and that IETF should review the situation.
