âA new paper on ownership rights in IPv4 addresses has been drafted,â writes Milton Mueller who writes his critique of the paper on the Internet Governance Project blog.
The paper Mueller reviews is by Author Ernesto Rubi, a J.D. candidate at Florida International University School of Law.
âThe paper explores the legal framework (or rather, the lack thereof) surrounding IP addresses. The depletion of the IPv4 free pool will, the author contends, intensify arguments about ownership interests in ipv4 address blocks. He concludes that âthe concept of IP number âownershipâ or claim of right may be inevitable.ââ
