This is bigger than any of us realize.

And its also not just limited to Afrinic...

I honestly seem to remember an ArsTechnica story from a while ago where some very big name companies have had some of their original IP Address Space purloined by a person and then sold on multiple times... i just can't find it anymore :(

For laymen to get an understanding they just need to replace “IP Address” with “Number Plates”
