And exactly why does that should concern me or anyone else? It's a good
thing that RPKI fails and BGP has been a mess for a very long time thanks
to cloud providers and CDNs. RIR registries are of very limited use today.
All we get are abuse mailboxes that nobody reads and very limited and
outdated owner information. People trust IRR databases,  PeeringDB and
geolocation data more than whois data.

Again: I'd like to see examples of such transfers in action because I don't
think they are relevant. I've worked with Goodle, Akamai, CloudFlare,
Netflix, Microsoft, Facebook and Amazon. They are all using legitimate
address space in the LAC region. And those alone account for *a lot* of

It's not common practice to advertise address space from other ASNs in the
LAC region with LOAs like it happens in the ARIN region. It should be easy
to track and make reports on that.
