Mike’s proposal expands trade and therefore can’t be construed as restraint of trade… The real question is if banning leasing in all forms is restraint of trade, why isn’t the current policy also restraint of trade?

If it is ARIN's position that it "does not impose any such restrictions on trade or pricing" with regards to pricing structure, why does ARIN differentiate justified need for transfers (trade) based on the absence or presence of connectivity services?
