Randy - 

All organizational assignments and allocations (except those located within
RIPE NCC and APNIC regions) were transferred to ARIN at inception. Reference
mods #6 & #7 of the previously noted NetSol/NSF cooperative agreement which 
transferred these registration services tasks to ARIN.  I don't know what 
"rights" per se you refer to, but know ARIN ended up with *responsibilities*
to manage these resources in accordance with its formative documents.
