Hi Sean,

The best practice is to go for the status quo while you figure it out.
How long have you been announcing the prefix? If only briefly, stop.
If you've been announcing it for a long time, keep doing so.

The RIR is the arbiter of who controls the address space. That's the
purpose of a registry. Reach out to the published POC by email, by
phone and if necessary by postal mail. Until you get a response to the
query YOU initiated to the POC, stick with the status quo.
