Introduction: PDF PPTX
Presentation: PDF PPTX
Transcript

  • Presentation of Draft Policy Summary, Staff Impact Analysis, Legal Review, Staff Comments, and overview of PPML discussion activity

Marc Crandall continued with the presentation of the proposal. Marc presented the text of the proposal and then the rationale

Discussion Highlights included:

  • Concern about the overall return on investment involved in having ARIN proactively seek out resources that have been fraudulently obtained or abandoned
  • Suggestions to find a middle ground where the transfer market or existing security entities may take care of the “low-hanging fruit” without spending an unjustified amount of time on a reclamation project
  • Suggestions on wording the proposal differently so as not to leave the time commitment from ARIN so open-ended
  • Belief that ARIN’s role is better served as “the responder to an issue, rather than the instigator”

For discussion details, please see the transcript.

At the end of discussion, Tim Denton asked for a show of hands to determine those in favor and those against the draft policy (remote participants were invited to participate).
