That being said, and I'm not happy about it, but it appears to me that the best course of action is to support John and ARIN in this matter. No matter how imperfect AFRINIC is, and acknowledging that they mostly created the problem by allowing this to happen, it would be even worse to allow CI to prevail, even in a court in Mauritius.

Which amounts to pennies per IP, which makes leasing them in another RIR a cash cow.
