Why people always believe they "own" IP address space and nobody can 
take it from them as if it was a router or a server purchased with a 
invoice and declared in their annual balance ?

RIR gives and give takes away since is not ASN's property and there 
rules for that. If there is a rule in place state what means a misuse 
then sanctions must apply.
Why are people are so skeptical about that this type of rule to be in 
place if supposedly nobody that becomes a RIR member should ever have 
the intention to void it in such way ?
