Sales of unused IPv4 addresses gathering steam

http://j.mp/KtLUPP  (Network World)

   "Thimmesch estimates that 1.2 billion IPv4 addresses are currently
    allocated and unused, creating a huge potential market for resale. He
    scoffs at the idea that the Internet is nearing IPv4 exhaustion as
    promulgated by Internet policymakers and standards bodies.  "We
    believe the transfer market is extending the viable life of IPv4 by
    decades," Thimmesch says, adding that he believes the African regional
    registry won't run out of IPv4 addresses until 2028."
