Sorry if I seem dense but how or where does geobyte come into the
picture at all when you receive an IP block from ARIN.  If the contact
information for that /16 has an error in it, then ARIN has a fairly
well documented procedure to change contact information for a netblock
and you can follow it.

Geobytes seems to use ARIN data along with what is basically wild
guessing to find where an IP is located.  If they make a wrong guess -
its an issue thats localized to them.
