Randy - You may believe that IP addresses are assets; feel free to do so.
ARIN's position follows RFC 2008 and RFC 2050 and will continue to do so
until the community directs otherwise.  For the legal discussion, see:

ARIN recognizes transfers of IP address blocks to designated recipients under 
the transfer policy which was extensively discussed by this community and 
adopted in June of last year: <>
Other regional registries have also adopted transfer policies.  That is not
the question.

The question discussed is the practice of performing resource review as a 
result of fraudulent applications.  This is clearly intended by the community 
in NRPM section 12 <> so ARIN
will do its best to enforce the policy as adopted.
