Hi Job,

In layman's terms, the difference is that you're now free to deal with
the RPKI TAL the same way you deal with the legal issues surrounding
access to ARIN's public whois data -- by ignoring them but not being
so dumb as to sue ARIN if something goes wrong.

Note that I am not a lawyer, this is not legal advice and no lawyer
will ever tell you to ignore legal ramifications even when practically
speaking that's the correct thing to do.
