Biggest problems we had as a service provider is that the block is registered
to a corporate entity which is then acquired or dissolves and then you have to
figure out who actually has control. We always tried to push the dispute
process to go between the customer and the RIR when this happens. It takes too
many legal resources to get involved in figuring out who owns what during an
acquisition or dissolution. Often this particular resources does not get
called out specifically and can be a problem. Sometimes they get treated like
corporate intellectual property and sometimes they get treated more like a
utility. It’s a legal nightmare to get in the middle of it. I have had cases
where it was so complex we forced one of the parties to get a court order one
way or another.
