There are always ways around the system.  I suspect what has happened is 
that IRR's require that a company hold addresses but they have 
provisions for companies to be sold or change names.  So the IP address 
brokers probably sell a "business" with the IP address block.

It might be simpler than that.  I don't know what the loopholes are but 
I'm sure some lawyers have read through all the documents and found a 
way.  I imagine it's never been tested in court because proving the 
system is being exploited would be hard, and the parties with a vested 
interest probably don't have the resources to make a fight of it.
