The IP Registry

PSI, an organisation that helps publishers eliminate subscription fraud and IP misuse, has announced the launch of a global registry of IP addresses.

On average, 58 per cent of IP ranges held by publishers are inaccurate, PSI has found. Because of this, a significant amount of content is open to unlicensed access, and libraries and publishers are likely to receive inaccurate usage statistics. Until now, the systems for keeping the IP ranges accurate and up to date have been cumbersome, time-consuming and inefficient for everyone involved.
