Anyone knows why is it written in French "Réseaux IP Européens" not in English like "American Registry for Internet Numbers" ? Lothar25 00:01, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
- I believe it's because the French language was considered the "international language" (for law and so on) for a long time. It remains the official language of a bunch of international organisations including Interpol and the United Nations. 188.8.131.52

- Daniel Karrenberg explained at RIPE 58, on 7 May 2009, that he was at an EUUG meeting in France in... 89? and gave a presentation about the European IP Network. Daniel put it in French on his slides as Reseaux IP Europeen. They were looking for a name for the [RIPE] organization, and there is some kind of tie in with another organzation called RARE, and an American from Texas, John Quarterman, suggested to Daniel that the name he was looking for was right here on his slides... RIPE. Daniel suggested it to Rob Blokjil. They liked the play of words... rare to ripe. The rest is history. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk)
Fair use rationale for Image:RIPE ncc logo.gif
Image:RIPE ncc logo.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 00:27, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
The statement: "Internet number resources do not have any monetary value" is probably not accurate. Perhaps it would be helpful to say that Internet number resources are not a tradeable commodity?

IP addresses are traded, though. Maybe not legitimately but there is definitely a trading market in them. Explaining the RIPE NCC's role or position on this would be helpful. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 11:57, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
Russia and Turkey are bicontinental countries whose IP adresses are administered by RIPE. Both have most of their territory in Asia and a small but important part in Europe. Russia is listed under both continents but Turkey only under Europe. Any reason for this discrepancy? — Tonymec (talk) 02:15, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
Strange country/region allocations
Turkey isn't a European country by any mean and should instead be listed in Asia.
Having some territories on continental Europe doesn't make it part of Europe.
Just like France isn't part of the Americas in spite of its presence over this continent through Guadelupe, Martinique or Guyana.
Or Denmark via Groënland (who doubles up with its dependancy being larger than itself)
Other examples could include Holland, Spain, etc, etc
And don't even get me started with UK's ginormous commonwealth...
