Last version: 2
Presented at: LACNIC 24 Presentations:

Summary

Once in force, the provisions of section 2.3.2.18 will allow blocks that have been assigned for at least one year to be transferred, even in cases not involving the merger, acquisition or sale of any organizations.

This proposal seeks to modify this term, extending it to at least three years.

This will also affect paragraph 8 of section 11.1 and paragraph 6 of section 11.2

Rationale

An allocation made just one year ago and once again available for transfer may possibly be a sign of a poorly drafted utilization plan, and therefore a sign of poor distribution or incorrect or even false information.

The goal of increasing to 3 years the minimum period of time before an allocated block can be transferred is to avoid cases where, acting in bad faith, allocations are received under sections 11.1 or 11.2 and then transferred after a minimum amount of time (one year), for example, for profit.

Text

Change 2.3.2.18.9. to:

"2.3.2.18.9.- Blocks and their sub-blocks from allocations or assignments from LACNIC, being initial or additional, can not be transferred for a period of THREE years as of the allocation or assignment date.”

Change paragraph 8 of section 11.1 to:

"8. Blocks received under this policy may not be transferred as specified in paragraph 2.3.2.18 of the policy manual for a period of THREE years. The same applies to its sub-blocks, i.e., blocks consisting of a subset of the IPv4 addresses contained in the block.”

Change paragraph 6 of section 11.2 to:

"6. Blocks received under this policy may not be transferred as specified in paragraph 2.3.2.18 of the policy manual for a period of THREE years. The same applies to its sub-blocks, i.e., blocks consisting of a subset of the IPv4 addresses contained in the block.”
