Hi  William,  

Answers  to your questions about CNNIC rules.  


It is illegal for transferring CNNIC IPv4 out of China mainland and CNNIC will not allow Microsoft to transfer its IPs in CNNIC accounts out of China mainland.  Furthermore, currently the new Government rules also does not allow APNIC IPv4 whose registration location is CN ( China mainland) to be transferred out of China mainland.  


Before we start to discuss about this 2015-02, your guys should know that Microsoft’s local Chinese business partner for its Azure is 21vianet and  Amazon’s local business partner is Chinanetcenter (网宿).  You can easily to do the goggle search to find out.   



This is what Microsoft had done:  
Microsoft had paid expensive money to have its purchased IPs to be transferred into China; Meanwhile  apply for plenty of free IPs from ARIN free pools  ( your guys can check ARIN database to find out ).  


ipv4|167.189.0.0/16|TNT Australia Pty Ltd|AU|APNIC|19930916|China Internet Network Information Center/CHINA-21VIANET|CN|APNIC|20140114  

Two CNNIC accounts ( where holding most of 21vianet’s IPs addresses) controlled by 21Vianet ( Chinese name: 世纪互联 Listed in the US stock market and they also have several other CNNIC accounts too, where Xiaomi becomes one of  its main shareholders  now) are:  

CHINA-21VIANET  
CHINA-ABITCOOL  


ipv4|167.220.224.0/19|American Registry for Internet Numbers/MOPL|AP|ARIN|20140109|Microsoft Singapore Pte. Ltd.|SG|APNIC|20140408  

ipv4|139.217.0.0/16|Dodo Australia|AU|APNIC|20110308|Microsoft Singapore Pte. Ltd.|SG|APNIC|20140428  
ipv4|139.219.0.0/16|Dodo Australia|AU|APNIC|20110308|Microsoft Singapore Pte. Ltd.|SG|APNIC|20140428


ipv4|139.217.0.0/16|Microsoft Singapore Pte. Ltd.|SG|APNIC|20110308|China Internet Network Information Center/MCCL-CHN|CN|APNIC|20140609  
ipv4|139.219.0.0/16|Microsoft Singapore Pte. Ltd.|SG|APNIC|20110308|China Internet Network Information Center/MCCL-CHN|CN|APNIC|20140609



Compared with what Amazon had done:  
Amazon had bought more IPs than Microsoft. nearly a /8 from Merck and plenty  from Dupont and other sources and their deal’s unit price is cheaper than Microsoft’s,  cos of their large purchase amount.  



 ipv4|54.222.0.0/15|American Registry for Internet Numbers/MERCK2|AP|ARIN|19920317|Amazon Connection Technology Services (Beijing) Co., LTD|CN|APNIC|20130408  


ipv4|54.222.0.0/15|Amazon Connection Technology Services (Beijing) Co., LTD|CN|APNIC|19920317|China Internet Network Information Center/CHINANETCENTER|CN|APNIC|20140219  



Considering the anti-flip rules in the ARIN transfer policy:  Amazon abides by the ARIN policy and transfer parts of purchased IPs into China.  However,Microsoft tries to transfer its free applied IPs from ARIN free pools into China.   

Both of those giants have taken the advantage of power,money and size to acquire lots of free IPs from ARIN free pools where we can see the smaller members suffer quite a lot and even hard to acquire a /24.     


Compared with Amazon, Microsoft  tries to find out a way to transfer the free ARIN IPs out of ARIN into China.  Apparently, Microsoft has taken advantage of the ARIN policy where they tell untruthful information to ARIN for apply for free IPs to be used in ARIN then several months later they tries to transfer the Ips out of ARIN by using excuses like:  plans changes etc.   


David like the Elvis who used to work in RIRs know the policy better than anyone else in the community and I think david is in a hurry to achieve something to verify that his is worthy of the money paid by Microsoft to hire him to do his jobs( getting as many free IPs as possible for Microsoft).    




Furthermore more info about 21vianet.    
Compared with what 21vianet had done:

21vianet knows that its business partner Microsoft had paid expensive money to buy that 167.189.0.0/16 and they knows the internal Chinese IP market is quite lot cheaper than the ARIN market, So they bought quite lots of cheaper IPs from Seehu.   

118.195.0.0/17; 59.191.0.0/17; 118.30.0.0/16; 123.61.0.0/16 etc has been transferred from seehu to 21vianet on Feb 2014.  Your guys cannot see this transfer in the APNIC public transfer log due to three reasons:    

1. CNNIC does lots of off-book transfers ( if you dig more, you will find who are the beneficial parties…)   
2. Seehu told APNIC this was a M/A transfer. However, this is not truth and the truth is that this is a normal transfer where Seehu sold its leased IPs for profit.    
3. APNIC does not list M/A transfer in its public transfer log.
