Demon Internet Services provide an  IP address for every dial-up 
customer. Most other ISPs have taken the view that this is a waste of 
valuable IP space and allocate IP addresses dynamically.

How should our industry respond to ISPs who behave selfishly and do 
not take into account the good of the network?
