> No signatory to any ARIN RSA is permitted by policy to engage in a recurring charge for addresses or a differentiated service charge based on the number if addresses issued to a customer. Addresses must be provided strictly as part of a contract for connectivity services and the number of addresses provided shall not, in any way, affect the cost of those connectivity services.
The goal of an LIR has always been to suballocate to end users they
provided connectivity services. I know LIR who do this today and only
charge for services not the /24 downstream assignments.

The transfer policies then introduced address purchasing and some LIR went
out of their way to pay for addresses based on need.

Is it safe to assume that the whole IPv4 market seems to have been created
by not the LIR but folks who are not LIR but figured they would profit from
brokering the limited addresses.

I am curious? Why an LIR whose ARIN membership fees is peanuts could go
about leasing addresses instead of profiting from only the services they
provide their customers.
