WRT the below route object, DataBank does announce IP space for Hoechst Celanese
Corporation as they are a direct customer of ours:
> $ whois -h whois.radb.net 18.104.22.168
> route: 22.214.171.124/16
> descr: /16 for Celanese
> origin: AS13767
> mnt-by: DBANK-MNT
> changed: jpope at databank.com 20090818
> source: LEVEL3
Currently, we only announce/originate the following prefixes via BGP:
via our providers, Level3 and Sprint. We asked our providers to relax their
filters for the whole /16, since Celanese owns that IP space. That may or may
not be a good idea, depending on your view of network management. We did this
in case our customer needed to announce new networks which would save us the
time/work of placing more/new route objects in the registry. We have the
appropriate LOA for this network which is validated through face-to-face
meetings with their network engineers and representatives.
DataBank is very sensitive to network abuse; we have an AUP in place with all of
our customers and will always work hard to enforce it to prevent network abuse.
I apologize that I didn't respond sooner, but I have gotten behind on my NANOG
