I highly recommend that legacy holders who wish to ensure that their rights are respected transfer their registrations to RIPE-NCC, whether they have signed the LRSA or not.

Transferring to RIPE-NCC as Legacy without Contract will afford you full respect for your rights in your resources in perpetuity (or at least as long as RIPE-NCC lasts) without requiring a contract and without having to pay fees.

If you need to establish presence in Europe to satisfy RIPE’s requirements, a cheap virtual machine can be leased for a month or two to get through the process and is never verified or validated thereafter.

I was an early signatory to the LRSA thinking I was doing the right thing. After the ARIN board changed end users from fee-per-ORG to fee-per-resource in order to get around the fee cap and bifurcated my org into two orgs (allowing them to charge even more), I came to regret that decision. Since transferring my legacy resources to RIPE-NCC, I have been considerably happier.
