What would establish IP addresses as some sort of ARIN-owned and licensed community property? Well, winning a court case like this, or congress passing a law.
Korea also has passed a law that any addresses assign to KRNIC become the property of KRNIC. But even passing a law doesn't make it so.

IP Addresses have always been treated as a resource of the network since its inception. The fact that lawmakers don't understand or care to understand doesn't change the facts of the case.
