Greetings all,

Aplogies if this has already been covered (I couldnt find it :) )

Does any one know what ARIN's policy is on ISP acquisition ??  Is there
one ??  In other words, ISP A buys ISP B.  ISP B has some pre-ARIN
allocated IP space (swamps from Internic, etc etc).  When ISP A goes to
modify these network objects in the ARIN DB, is there going to be a
problem ?? Will ARIN say they have to be returned ??  

Feel free to contact me off list if you feel this is not relevant to said
