Default 97% of INTERNET NOW FULL UP, warn IPv4 shepherd boys

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/12/01/ipv4_countdown/

Quote:
Less than three per cent of IPv4 address space is still to be allocated, after two huge chunks were given to American and European ISPs.

ARIN and RIPE, which administer IP addresses on either side of the Atlantic, each received two /8 address blocks in November. A fifth block went to their African equivalent.

The moves leave only seven /8 blocks - 2.7 per cent of the total of 256 - unallocated by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).

I think it's about time that the following net blocks get forcibly reallocated.

Code:
NetRange:       3.0.0.0 - 3.255.255.255
CIDR:           3.0.0.0/8
OrgName:        General Electric Company

NetRange:       9.0.0.0 - 9.255.255.255
CIDR:           9.0.0.0/8
OrgName:        IBM Corporation

NetRange:       13.0.0.0 - 13.255.255.255
CIDR:           13.0.0.0/8
OrgName:        Xerox Corporation

NetRange:       15.0.0.0 - 15.255.255.255
CIDR:           15.0.0.0/8
NetRange:       16.0.0.0 - 16.255.255.255
CIDR:           16.0.0.0/8
OrgName:        Hewlett-Packard Company

NetRange:       17.0.0.0 - 17.255.255.255
CIDR:           17.0.0.0/8
OrgName:        Apple Inc.

NetRange:       19.0.0.0 - 19.255.255.255
CIDR:           19.0.0.0/8
OrgName:        Ford Motor Company
That's over 16 million unique IP addresses per company, Apple is the only one that appears to even use their assigned range for their publicly accessible websites.

It was wasteful to give private companies in the US entire /8 ranges, and in the case of HP, 2 full /8 ranges.

This is just a small example, the US military also has large portions of the IPv4 space for their own mostly internal uses.

Why not just deallocate them?

Yes, that would be a necessary initial step.. the companies holding them should definitely donate them willingly, not that it's going to happen.
