Yes, ARIN can terminate the RSA for illegal conduct, however, generally,
that clause is expecting the findings of a court of competent jurisdiction
to make the determination that illegal activity has occurred. Without such
a finding from a court, ARIN could be found liable for unfair termination.
That clause doesn't mean that ARIN decides who is guilty of such conduct,
which you seem to want ARIN to do.
