What are your latest billings to ICANN ?
What are your total billings to ICANN ?
Did you once claim to be working "pro-bono" and then charge $250,000 one month ?
As an attorney representing ICANN, have you advised the company on the revenues
it should be collecting from the various companies using 0:0 .ARPA address space ?
There are 16,777,216 IPv4 addresses in a /8.
Many companies lease those addresses for $10 per month.
It is common for a broker to take one month as their annual fee in the real estate market.
Given the above...that would mean a /8 leases for $167,772,160 per year, rounded to $168 million.
Will AT&T and the other companies be prepared to pay ICANN that each year ?
...will that be split with Lucent ?
012/8 AT&T Bell Laboratories Jun 95
What about ARIN, RIPE and APNIC ?
Will they be paying that each year to ICANN for *each* of the /8s they have ?
ARIN 024/8, 063/8, 064/8, 065/8, 066/8, 067/8, 068/8, 069/8, 199/8, 200/8, 204/8, 205/8, 206/8, 207/8, 208/8, 209/8, 216/8
RIPE 080/8, 081/8, 193/8, 194/8, 195/8, 212/8, 213/8, 217/8,
APNIC 202/8, 203/8, 210/8, 211/8, 218/8, 219/8, 220/8, 221/8
ARIN - 17 /8s - $2,852,126,720 annual fee
RIPE - 8 /8s - $1,342,177,280 annual fee
APNIC - 8 /8s - $1,342,177,280 annual fee
...approximately $6 billion dollars per year in revenue to ICANN...
Does ICANN need that much revenue from Address Space Leasing with the $1 per domain per year fee?
....which may yield ~$50,000,000 a year...
Should domain name fees subsidize address space users ?
Why does ARIN pay ICANN while AT&T does not pay ICANN ?
Why haven't the ICANN Directors charged all of the address space users the same ?
What will China, Africa and Latin America be paying ICANN for address space ?
