False Flag: Internet is out of IP addresses! The IPV6 Pillar to the Real World Web

RE: Internet is running out of IP addresses!
An interesting article appeared during one of my forays into IPV4 exhaustion, and it turns out that a comment at http://forums.cnet.com/7723-10152_102-516104.html notes corporations sitting on massive blocks of IP addresses without using them.

http://mashable.com/2011/02/03/ipv4-ipv6-guide/ also notes under Q: Why are we running out of IPv4 addresses? that many blocks are owned by corporations, though the first link contains itself a link to the pertinent data.

So there are plenty of IP's to go around until IPv6 gets all settled in.
Truth appears in many forms. Find those that resonate with you.
