Where to buy Internet IP addresses

The potential problem is segmentation. Start assigning meanings to
chunks of bits, like routing info or even customer type (mobile,
static, etc) or geography, and the bits can get used up pretty
quickly. Or put another way the address space becomes sparsely
populated but inflexible.

I know, "don't do that", well, when they give you (for any "you") that
job be sure to send us a postcard...

Any resource which is cheap (free!)  and seemingly plentiful will get
"abused", used in a way the engineers never intended (one word: spam!)

Hey, anyone want to buy an ipv6 prefix which spells out their last
name or company name when interpreted as UTF-8?! Q00l! :-)
