[ih] Some Questions over IPv4 Ownership


I have always wondered what an IP address (and of course a domain name)

But then, I am not a laywer, only an elderly Obstetrician (though, to
quote Eric "Otter" Stratton: "What's the difference?" (Yes, I know,
wishful thinking :-)-O)), but

> (a) As may be set forth in the Addendum, Qwest will secure domain names

> upon termination of the Agreement, Customer's access to and utilization of
> such IP addresses shall terminate.
> "ownership" is not defined anywhere else in the contract.
