Title: RE: IPV4 as a Commodity for Profit

I am not sure it's a perfectly functioning market.

The whole point of a market is to penalize the holding excess inventory of IP addresses.

There is no penalty today because there is no opportunity cost to holding excess inventory. :)

What's amazingly ironic is how the free market guys suddenly vanish when one wants to apply free markets to their industry ...
