Korea also has passed a law that any addresses assign to KRNIC become  
the property of KRNIC. But even passing a law doesn't make it so.

IP Addresses have always been treated as a resource of the network  
since its inception. The fact that lawmakers don't understand or care  
to understand doesn't change the facts of the case.
