Calling Cerner a "Software Vender" is a bit like calling Walmart a door greeter training center... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cerner

The other option available to organizations interested in acquiring IPv4 address blocks is via Specified Transfer.  IPv4 Market Group is an ARIN registered and approved Facilitator for such transactions.  We have multiple blocks (/16, /17, /18) available to those organizations that, as Mr. Curran identifies, can demonstrate need over 12 months.  Please visit us at www.ipv4marketgroup.com for more information.

So where can I buy some IPv4 addresses?? Seems like v6 is slow coming so stocking up on some $12 v4 addresses could be a lucerative business. Where do I get them..?

We've still got them at ARIN, so you can go to www.arin.net and ask for some.  Of course, you'll only be approved for what you need for 90 days, so that's not exactly stocking up.   

If you want to get some from an existing address holder, you need to show that you'll deploy them in your network within the next 12 months or the transfer will not be approved.  More information at www.arin.net

For those interested in background on the change in handling of IP addresses, the following article may help - http://www.circleid.com/posts/psst_interested_in_some_lightly_used_ip_addresses

So how much does a block of IP's usually go for? Is this cheap? Expensive?

Web hosting providers rent IPs for $1-5 per IP per month. So if this buyer is in that business they could recover their money within 12 months. After that it's all profit!

Ok, so you wrote the article for readers.  What about the math wiz out there?  That's less than a million, fools.  My computer calculator says $786432.  Somebody check my math.
