No no no. This is *still* ambiguous.

That says that the IP space will be reclaimed from "the defrauding entities".
But is that set limited to just the phoney baloney shell comapnies that
Micfo set up, or does that also include Micfo itself?

This is an important point, and Micfo has/had a LOT of juicy IPv4 space that it
had obtained, somehow, even before it set up any of this shell company nonsense.
