That is an interesting comment, has anyone ever heard of ARIN
revoking IP's from a entity who no longer meets current ARIN
criteria for a give size allocation? Or is it infact the
case that once you get the IP space as long as you keep paying
for it you get to keep it? in essence you do "own" it as long as
you keep the capitalist portion of ARIN happy and pay your annual
IP bills? (no offense to those ARIN workforce members among us).

That has been the suggestion from several people.
I've even considered it, especially when one of my local
competitors has a /18, and they are much smaller than we are.
We 'NAT' an incredible amount of dial-up and commercial customers
to reduce our need for public IP's, and trends thankfully went to
customers WANTING to be NAT'd and Proxied for 'firewall' reasons,
with only a few public IP's.
It seems a poor reasons for acquiring a company, as they
really do not "own" the address space. --Mike--
