Subject: Stop ISPs from selling IP Addresses


   When IPv6 is finally available from ISPs, ICANN needs to insure that ISPs stop selling IP addresses.  Today, if you want to give everyone in your home an IP address you pay a small business price rather than the classic $19.95 service fee.  Tommorrow things will even be worse. 

Sometimes it is true that homes only need a single IP address even for multiple users.  However, other applications such as home web servers often require unique IP addresses.
