Without venturing too far off topic, can you briefly compare this situation
versus e.g. licensing of open source software? Often, such software is
(apparently) licensed without express agreement - using bundled license
files, comments inside source files, etc - and seems to accommodate the IPR
and liability needs of developers and their supporting organizations. Is it
ARIN's understanding that this approach is not useful for RPKI data in the
US, etc?

In any case, I also look forward to hearing the Overcoming Legal Barriers
to RPKI Adoption talk next week (on Monday afternoon, IIRC), and I hope
that the Q&A discussion (and evening follow-up) will be helpful.
