The first item they need is a Network Engineer.

You do not have actual IP addresses for servers you have DNS entries. In my non legal opinion the individual filling suit is out money because of there lack of understanding of  DNS entries versus IP addresses. You can resolve thousands of web sites to one IP address if you want to or get another block of IP addresses from ARIN and resolve the other addresses to the newly assigned addresses. It appears from the filing that they do not understand how DNS works since with an appropriately designed zone structure there would be no issues.

This lawsuit is about the stupidity of the plaintiff and not about IP address management. If any organization owns the IP addresses it is the registries and they only lease them out to organizations for a nominal fee to provide order and security for the Internet. ICANN for other issues and ARIN for addresses bend over backwards to have large ISPs and multinationals go through the same short process as any other requester of IP addresses and have only one policy. And if you have ever attended an ARIN meeting point out of the 100 to several hundred high opinionated individuals who attend which ones control it for their own economic benefit.

Send this legal team a copy of Comer's books on TCP/IP and Cricket Liu's book on DNS and BIND. I take the Comer books back they would not understand them so give them Uyless Black's books they are more clueless friendly.
