That's a good question.  Maybe they can't qualify under Arin rules.  Another  
question will be: how is Arin going to handle it?

Im pretty sure that the RSA says that in the event of bankruptcy ips revert  
to the Arin pool.  I understand that these were legacy addresses but.......

I think the more interesting question is why would Microsoft pay
$7.5 million for something they can, at least for the moment, get
for free.
