Depends on which IRR you use. The IRRDBs run by RIPE, APNIC and AfriNIC
implement hierarchical object ownership, which means that if you're
registering their address space, you can only do so if that address space
legitimately belongs to you. This isn't the case on third party IRRDBs
like RADB, L3 and AltDB.
