silly court rulings on IP addresses

What do you get when you take technical issues to court when the judges know nothing about internet standards? Silly rulings.

A court in New Jersey has issued a temporary restraining order allowing a company to take its IP address with them when they move hosts. Anyone who knows the first thing about IP allocations and DNS knows that this is a ridiculous ruling, and violates ARIN policies and well established practices. In fact, the RFC for IPv6 explicitly states that relocatable IPs are not permitted.
