ARIN holds that IP address space is not property but is managed as a
public resource.  Address holders may have certain rights (such as the
right to be the registrant of the address block, the right to transfer the
registration, etc.) but these rights intersect with additional rights to the
same address blocks which are held by the community (such as the right
of visibility to the public portion of registrations).  The registry policies
(set by the community via open and transparent processes) govern the
intersection and application of these rights.

Would it be correct to summarize the ARIN position as "It's murkier than Cerner
makes it out to be, and some lawyers are gonna get stinking filthy rich
litigating this one"?
