Hi Bill,


Arin processes a purchase of address.

I turn around and lease them for a fraction of that amount.

I add accessiblity and affordability for the lessees, or there is no market.

It's as simple as a bank financing a pickup truck.

Is the bank guilty of rent-seeking?

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.
