Well I definately started thinking about this a few month ago. We currently get the IPV4 Data from a paid source and I also have an old script of mine that parces the data available(havent run the routine in a while) from the ARIN, RIPE etc ftp sites.
I think I will still go the route of the way we have it now, the IP data is in DB and then ....

Almost all the IPV4 ranges have now been allocated - there was a major allocation bout last year, mostly to US companies. It now depends, I suppose, on how many of those IPs get used up and how fast. With some companies allocating /15 and more to clouds, it could be soon. :(
