Assuming that everybody has read Shane's description regarding the 2 types of non-profit :-) While it is certainly true that a considerable numer of RIPE NCC Members and beneficiaries of it's services are (big) commercial companies, we have to keep in mind that the NCC also distributes resources (directly or by way of a sponsoring LIR), to Non-Profits of Type#1, NGOs, very small or start-up companies, even small associations and individuals. What you are suggesting would certainly harm primarily (or even exclusively?) the wrong parties, as the bad guys would certainly have the deep pockets to just pay and forget. :-( [...] > Regards, > rfg Wilfried.
