Section 2 offers ARIN the ability to terminate the contract if a licensee misrepresents the information it provides to ARIN. Does this mean that ARIN can and will terminate my agreement if we make an innocent or trivial mistake in a request? As shown in the table above, Legacy resource holders can manage their unique registration information in both ARINes Whois, update and manage this information without having a signed registration agreement (RSA) or Legacy RSA (LRSA). However, there are certain circumstances in which an older resource holder may be required to sign an RSA/LRSA ARIN. For any transfer of registration rights to resources for internet numbers, the receiving organisation must have an updated and executed registration service contract (RSA). In addition, a starting fee may be levied for the organization of beneficiaries. In this sense, ARIN essentially clarified and reduced ARIN`s references to “cessation of cause,” as can be inferred from the comparison between the old section 14, point b) and the revised section 12 (b). ARIN has also broadened the range of reasons why an age holder is allowed to “terminate for reasons,” as shown by the comparison of the old sections 14 (c) and d) with the new sections 12 (c) and d). At points 3 (a) and c) of the RSA, there is reference to unauthorized access. Why is this provision in the agreement and can the RSA be amended to refer only to persons currently connected to our organization (i.e. current employees, current officers, etc.)? First, LRSA v3.0 discontinues the non-application procedure described in the previous LRSA and Registration Service Agreement (RSA) and withdraws the application process from the contract document. (Note – ARIN intends to make similar systemic changes in the near future in a new version of the RSA)) We believe that this amendment will be very useful for the clarity of the agreement. The RSA limited ARIN`s authority to amend the agreement without prior authorization, as described in Section 1, d) (the same authority was previously in an unnumered paragraph).
What is at stake in the change? Third, ARIN recognizes that there is a widespread perception that an LRSA is considered “more favourable” to filers than the standard RSA. As ARIN moves towards the definitive issuance of new IPv4 resources, it is actively examining how the language of LRSA v3.0 can be used in the future when appropriate to modify the ARIN RSA standard. In the short term, ARIN intends to reduce the differences between the two agreements by extending part of the language of the LRSA to the RSA. The only area in which the requirements for the LRSA v3.0 are changed in the direction of the RSA is payments. The owners of LRSA v1 and v2 have benefited from very attractive financial terms that may not cover the fair share of the costs of providing services to former owners in general.
