I guess my question here is, does ARIN have the right to take Legacy IP space
if it's not being used properly?  For example 44/8 which is Legacy from IANA.

Or does legacy in this context mean a company with a /14 allocation from ARIN
thats not using it? If so, how often, if ever has ARIN done this?  Can you
provide some examples of this being done?
