Your premise is still wrong.  Only networks that use the RIPE DB care 
about what's in the RIPE DB.  There is no requirement for Level 3 to use 
it.  There is no law that says they have to.

Again, do you believe these networks are hijacked?  If they are in 
legitimate use by the companies that they are allocated to in whois, then 
there is no scam.
