ISPs, AUPS, and RIRs

Spam: Kasia raises a very interesting question. Here it is, in a nutshell:

Should the quality of an ISP’s enforcement of its Acceptable Use Policy, be a condition of their contract with their Regional Internet Registry, and therefore affect whether they can be assigned new network address space?

  • Are there that many ISPs with lax or virtually nonexistent spam-related AUP enforcement? Yes, definitely.
  • Is spam that much of a problem? Speaking personally, I would say yes, but then, I would ;)
  • who would judge whether an ISP is doing enough, or too little?
