Subject: IPV6 and IP Welfare Checks!


                The whole idea of Microsoft and Intel getting into the Internet and having monopolistic influence at IANA and ICANN, even to the extent of Bill Gates illegally 'buying' the flunkie Governor of the State of Washington, is Corporate Welfare.

The basic problem was with IANA and Bell Telephone.  Twomey and his buddies decided that IP's should be charged for, about $10.00 per month.  The large corporations just budgeted money so that they could monopolize IP Addresses crucial to start up internet commerce sites.  This way, they would drain the resources of proprietorships and small business.  Just as AT&T had done since 1960, with packet switching which was invented under the Pentagon and thus all patents and copyrights belong exclusively to the American People who footed the bill, these megacorporations wanted to 'steal' the rights of IP Addressing as well as TCP/IP which also belong exclusively to the American People who funded it with their tax dollars.

Now this has got to stop!  Why?  Because, once again, these megacorporations want to bilk the American People out of a monthly check for their failing businesses, IBM, Microsoft, AT&T, GE, and the rest.

With 64-bit IP Addressing their is absolutely no need to charge for static IP blocks; there are more than enough to go around, about 16,000,000,000,000,000,000.  That's about 4 billion IP Addresses for every man, woman, and child on this planet!

It's time to start an investigation into IANA and ICANN regarding Sherman Antitrust Act violations by those who now comprise the majority of the boards of IANA and ICANN.

With the issuance of a domain registration, free blocks of IP Addresses should automatically, by law, and without charge, should be issued to that registrant.

AOL and MSN should be stopped dead in their tracks, now!
