Re: Big List of network owners?

Please describe exactly what you want to do with the data. If its specific 
action based on some network name or per their ASN, I can probably deliver 
it (assuming this function has community value for more then just your 
needs). But providing entire list - is too open for abuse and also may 
violate RIR policies for not redistributing bulk whois data in "bulk form".

If you want to do it yourself - feel free to contact every RIR (its only 4 
of them) and sign for bulk whois agreements (and RIPE and APNIC already 
provide their whois database free actually if you look around) and write 
scripts and program to put it all in the database format that you want.
