Peering contract, needed or optional?


I just had a discussion with our legal advisor whether it is necessary or
not to sign a peering contract with every (little) peering partner.

I know that a lot of the big ones require these contracts and I don't have
a problem with that, my opinion just is that a contract with a peer who
announces one /19 is not really necessary.

Another question is if there has ever been any lawsuit about peering...


Today's Opnix is tomorrow's UUNet, and it's easier to get the
contract when they are small to use as a hammer when they are big.

  Ok, I just tried three times, I can't say that sentence without
laughing, but it makes my point. :slight_smile:
