You miss the point - there are many different kinds of commercial organisation structures that are not Limited/PLC/Limited by Guarantee companies that can hold LIR assets and be members. Why should I be a Limited/PLC/Limited by Guarantee company just to hold LIR membership or an ASN/PA/PI/etc space ? Just because SOCA finds it makes their life harder doesn't mean the whole commercial world has to change to make their lives a bit easier. Why do you find it disturbing that we can have different corporate structures ? All registered of course otherwise they would struggle to do business :-) f
