Probably no interest until somebody figures how to Trademark an IP
address and claim ownership to it, so when the DHCP server assigns it
to somebody else, she/he will sue you for Trademark violation. I'd
probably bet that there are several attorneys out there trying to
figure how to milk the IP address space, particularly now that IPv4
space is becoming scarce and there is an emerging market for it.
