The system is severely broken: the RIRs have been given authority (over
IP space) without the responsibility to match it (ultimate
responsibility for dealing with abuses from it).  Naturally enough,
they don't want to do anything about this (who wants more
responsibility, especially when you're getting paid to exercise
authority without it?), and the body in a position to fix it
(ICANN/IANA) is sitting on their thumbs.

Can you please explain what you mean by "dealing with abuses" and the legal basis for ICANN or the RIRs doing this?
