I Have to agree with the rest of you. an ITU driven registry makes no sense. It just adds confusion and administrative/juridical problems. As for development in third world countries. I think the current model is better adapted, since It's centered on technology and infrastructure. As well as open standards. Not directly linked with commercial interests at mind. With the ITU in the game, the balance of power over the cornerstones of the internet, might very well move in behind closed doors. I fear this might also enable some telco:s to create commercial monopolies in some local markets. Inhibiting fair competition, leading to overpriced, low capacity services for the end-users. Also there is no real reason behind the claim? Why does not the current model work for the ITU? And in what way is an establishment of an new register justified?

Nowhere in the proposal did I see any specific complaints about how IANA is currently administering address space; rather, it merely asserts that address space should be set aside to "[take] into consideration the future needs of developing countries", and vague assertions that access to IP space is currently somehow not "equitable". > > Further, there are passages like this: > " that it is in the public interest that IP-based networks and other > telecommunication networks should be both interoperable and provide, at a > minimum, the level of quality of service provided by traditional networks, > consistent with ITU-T recommendations and other recognized international > standards, " > > > This all just seems like a political ploy by ITU to remain relevant by holding a large chunk of the address pool hostage. > > > Needless to say, the views above do not represent the views of anyone except for me. > > Adam Waite > > > > Niels Dettenbach wrote: >> Dear all here, >> >> i'm really confused by the current debate around ITUs "idea" of a secondary address registry system.

The diversification of policies will lead to many unclear juristical problems, political disputes in many levels and make an most equal treatment of all peoples as (potentially) IP users impossible on earth. >> >> Bringing the liability for IP address space to origin countries will lead to abusive policies and lobbyism within certain countries. Similiar policies as thought by the ITU still happens since decades for the distribution of satellite space segments where each country helds a dedicated segment of the geostationary satellite orbit. >> There are countries which aren't using such segments byself or for their peoples - instead they rented or selled it to somewhere but the income got directed to some private pockets... >> >> I see no advantage for any of the IP users in the "new" concept from ITU which seems mainly a trial to renew their old and obsolete concepts into the IP world and to bring themselves into IP. It may help to grow lobbyism and save todays obsolete business and political concepts. >> >> Just my two cents... >> Cheers, >> >> >> Niels. >> >> Btw: sorry for my bad english... >> >> --- >> Niels Dettenbach >> LIR: de.skyway >> ND1000-RIPE >> http://www.skyway.net >> http://www.syndicat.com >> >> ---- If you don't want to receive mails from the RIPE NCC Members Discuss list, please log in to your LIR Portal account at: http://lirportal.ripe.net/ >> First click on General and then click on Edit. >> At the bottom of the Page you can add or remove addresses. > > ---- If you don't want to receive mails from the RIPE NCC Members Discuss list, please log in to your LIR Portal account at: http://lirportal.ripe.net/ > First click on General and then click on Edit. > At the bottom of the Page you can add or remove addresses.
