That part is not true. ICANN owns the address space, and their agreements state they can take some or all of it back if it isn't being used. The company I work for lost all of our /19 because they discovered we lied and had no intention of even using the space.
The Eli Lilly Crime Family would be an excellent target for ICANN. The family has for over a century hurt the public, and is only using a tiny fraction of their over 16 million IP addresses. That family hates us.
Plus, the USPS was prepared to give part of 56/8 back until the Bush asshole threaten to put people in prison for treason. The moron thought honoring the agreement on the use of IP addresses was treason. How stupid.
