>From RIPE's reply: which indeed, doesn't state that -YOUR OWN- AS won't be billed extra, but rather "The only difference between 'my infrastructure' and 'my end-user' is that you don't need to upload a contract." So the end result of the 2007-1 policy is that we can now all pay extra cash to ripe for something we already had... Funny that, because I always was under the impression that entries marked as "own infrastructure" would remain in the normal points-based billing model... seeing the replies so far, i take it most other LIRs were too :P ripes reply: It was communicated through our website: http://ripe.net/rs/pi-existing-assignments.html And at the moment that you could make a selection for the resources through the LIR portal there was a link 'What are the consequences of my choice? (click to expand...)' If you clicked on it you would get the following pop-up: * My Infrastructure: If you have selected this option you will not have to upload a contract and registration papers, as these resources are assigned to your LIR's own infrastructure and are covered by the Standard Service Agreement you have signed with the RIPE NCC. * The RIPE NCC will audit all resources listed as 'My Infrastructure'. These resources are included in the charging scheme 2010. My End User: If you have selected this option the independent resource will stay registered with your LIR. You will have to upload an Independent Assignment Request and Maintenance Agreement between your LIR and the End User and the End User's company registration papers, before 1st March 2010. These resources are included in the charging scheme 2010. * Not my End User: If you select this option the independent resource will be removed from your LIR's records. These resources are marked and excluded from the charging scheme 2010. Eventually these resources will also be removed from your LIR Portal. The only difference between 'my infrastructure' and 'my end-user' is that you don't need to upload a contract.
