if an ISP incurs costs and buys an ISP license from the regulator, why 
can't they just recover their expenses and give a license to each 
internet cafe in town?

While IP addresses are not as strictly regulated as communications 
licenses, you have more responsibilities / restrictions that with a used 
car which you can sell as you like.

You got your IPs in order to connect devices/customers and users to this 
internet thing. not for trading.

one way of recovering expenses would be to provide connectivity services 
and include the IPs upon justification ;-)
