Hi Mike,

ARIN leases addresses to you. You turn around and lease them to
someone else at a higher price. You add nothing in the process, no
network services or anything like that. The lessee can't rent them
directly from ARIN, not because of cost or risk or whatever but ARIN
doesn't have any left to rent. It's about as straightforward an
example of rent seeking as you can get.
