Summary

This proposal includes a specific section on minimum requirements for legacy resources, along with provisions for their potential recovery in the event of non-compliance.

Rationale (Describe the problem you intend to solve)

Legacy resources are those assigned before the creation of Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). Any Internet resources (IP address block or ASN) assigned before 28 December 1997 is considered a legacy resource.

Those who received these resources may already be members of LACNIC if they have requested other resources and pay the corresponding membership fees. However, some recipients of legacy resources may not have signed the membership contract nor paid any fees, and yet receive certain services (except RPKI), subsidized by the rest of the membership base.

If they believe it is appropriate, the Board has the authority to establish an alternative fee to receive these services, as APNIC has done. However, regardless of the Board's authority to make a decision in this regard, the community can decide that the use of those resources must be beneficial to the community and that, if they are not being used and announced, or if the WHOIS database is outdated and their holder cannot be contacted, they may be recovered.

This will avoid:
a) unused resources (the organizations that received them —or the person who managed them— have disappeared, or they no longer need them in full or in part);
b) resources that are being used maliciously or without the original recipients’ consent;
c) outdated contacts, which make it difficult or impossible to solve cases of abuse.

It's even possible that some of these organizations are unaware of the existence of these resources, including those received from LACNIC, so contacting them will be mutually beneficial both for them and for the community. In addition, if the board so decides, these organizations could receive RPKI or other services even without becoming LACNIC members.

7.6. Legacy Resources Management

LACNIC may continue to provide services to legacy resources subject to the conditions established by the Board of Directors, provided that:
• These resources are announced and utilized.
• Their reverse resolution records are maintained.
• Their allocation and assignment information is updated in the WHOIS database managed by LACNIC or the NIRs, as applicable, and that the abuse-c contact attribute is maintained up to date.

Upon ratification of this policy, LACNIC may initiate a transition period of one year, during which it will contact all organizations holding legacy resources and inform them of the need to comply with the policy. These organizations will be offered the possibility of becoming LACNIC members to maintain their services, with the options that the Board of Directors may specify.

After this period, if the requirements above are not met, the Board of Directors reserves the right to cease providing certain services or initiate the resource recovery procedures.

Additional information

In several RIRs, including LACNIC, legacy resources lose their legacy status when a membership contract is signed or when they are transferred. In other cases, nothing is specified in the policies.

In addition, APNIC has recently approved an equivalent policy, and the APNIC Executive Council (equivalent to the LACNIC Board of Directors) has passed a resolution to allow legacy resource holders to receive services —including RPKI— without becoming members.
