PHD study on ownership of IP addresses + Kremen vs ARIN

In his study “THE IMPENDING IPv4 CRISIS: HOW U.S. COURTS ARE LIKELY TO APPROACH THE QUESTION OF OWNERSHIP RIGHTS IN IPv4 NUMBERS” Ernesto Rubi looks into claims whether IP addresses are given in ownership to the end-user. In short the answer is no. Here’s the link.

From what I’ve heard recently, the verdict in the California court case Kremen vs. ARIN substantiates this view. I’ll admit not to have found the actual text. If anyone has it, please send me a link and I’ll post it here also.

This makes me a bridge builder. Hence the blogs name. In this blog I intend to stress the need for interaction, cooperation and exchange of information in order to change the mentioned relationships. On offer: a comprehensive training on all non-technical aspects of spam enforcement and a cyber awareness presentation for companies and institutions
