Proof of ownership; when someone demands you remove a prefix

Another thing that would affect me as a service provider would be the account history.  I would probably be more skeptical if this was a long term customer who has been announcing this prefix for a long period of time vs a new customer that just began announcing it.

i.e.  If I just began announcing it and there is an ownership dispute right away, I might suspect my new customer misappropriated the block.  If he had been announcing it for years and now someone wants it taken down, that is a higher burden of proof for me.  As always bottom line is who has the block registered with RAR is the final authority.
