Many of these outfits already have cashflow issue - suing them into the ground
when they're already underwater is probably a cash-losing situation for ARIN.
And I bet other orgs who are in good financial standing dont want to fund a
suit against a judgement-proof org and lose money pushing lawyers around just
for fun - not until IPs are worth $10+/IP/month at least, anyway. Then the
lawsuits might be worth the investment.
Pretty awesome: I see a new industry forming: IP REPO MEN.
