A Local Internet Registry is allocated a block of IP addresses which 
it assigns to its customers.  An End-User is assigned a block of IP 
addresses for internal use.  The difference between the two is that 
the LIR is doing business by reassigning IP addresses and it charges 
its customers for that.

The fee structure can be changed by making a proposal at an Annual 
General Meeting.  If the fees for End-Users is increased 
significantly it will adversely affect universities.
