Proof of ownership; when someone demands you remove a prefix
Yes, absolutely go with the RIR. Only thing I might adjust it whether I let the customer launch a dispute with the RIR before or after I make the change and to me that would depend on the preponderance of the evidence either way. I might give the long term customer the reasonable doubt. A new customer with a new advertisement not so much. Talk to your legal people of course but I would think if the RIR could verify a dispute in progress, you are covered until the dispute is resolved. Seems legally reasonable to me and shows due diligence on your part without you getting in the middle.

>If you contacted the POC and the POC replied stop, you stop. If the POC was hijacked at the RIR, that's between your customer and the RIR.
>The RIR has a standard process and an expert team for dealing with these situations. It's their job.
