There are already laws in the US that cover the cases ARIN could take action on.

ARIN policy doesn’t carry the force of law, so walking into court and saying “This person hijacked my ARIN space and that’s a violation of ARIN policy” isn’t all that likely to add anything useful to the process.

I’m loathe to predict what courts will do and I’m not a lawyer, but my guess is that whether or not hijacking is against ARIN policy isn’t going to have much impact either way on the case in question.

It will be interesting to see if we get a test case, whether the judge will consider ARIN registration to be sufficient to support any sort of claim against a hijacker. However, in order to guarantee that the court would do so, you’d need a civil code statute or a criminal law, not an ARIN policy.

Until there’s some form of legal precedent that ARIN registration conveys exclusive right to use on the internet by law, it’s merely a gentlemen’s agreement among cooperating parties.

If this requires expanding the scope of ARIN’s operations or policies, bring that back to the membership (possibly via PPML?) with the accompanying financial & legal analysis, as usual.
