Interesting AP Article

IP addresses are very valuable..."routable" IP addresses
are even more valuable...routability is determined by other
Internet participants being willing to route your traffic...if
you have a nicely aggregated block of addresses then you
are OK...if not, then you are in trouble...

Well, I am sure the InterNIC would be more than willing to trade a small,
fully utilized block for a larger block with room to grow. But I won't
mention the R word here :slight_smile:

ISPs will have to start "seizing" blocks of addresses from
IANA and taking over allocation responsibility to survive...
as you can read between the lines on
no one is going to insure that your business survives...

Well, I doubt this will happen any time soon. Remember what happened to
the person who was announcing 208/8.
