I succeeded my father.  That fact does not automatically grant me any authority of his - it has to be legally provided for (e.g. inherited per the law) if I'm to claim it legitimately.

Does ARIN have a privileged legal status as a result of their formation by NetSol, by contract with IANA or the US Govt, or otherwise?
