Thanks, we appreciate the effort.

That being said, something has to be done. I feel that the RPKI validation by ARIN is somehow useless. Why : because few download the TAL (at least in part because of the indemnisation clause).
Therefore, many networks that do RPKI validation do validate prefixes from the other 4 RIRs but not mine.
In simple words : why bother validating, if all of most of the networks that could block invalid prefixes don't, because the TAL agreement is not palatable.

I understand that ARIN has to deal with a legal system that makes things difficult, but OTOH I would like ARIN's RPKI validation to provide the same protection than the other RIRs, which it currently does not.

I created my ROAs, but I am not protected as well as an Org belonging to another RIR.
