if anyone should learn of an RPZ feed that's not listed at 
https://dnsrpz.info/, please let us know. we'd like to be as 
comprehensive as possible.

and keep in mind that running a local RPZ is as easy as creating a 
primary master DNS zone in your NOC or SOC, and propagating it via zone 
transfer to all of your RDNS servers. your own local intelligence as to 
what you should not correctly resolve, is usually better than anything 
you can subscribe to externally.

there is not yet a crowd-sourced RPZ that gangs together all of the 
local NOC/SOC observations -- but i consider such to be inevitable.

RPZ as a specification is free to implement, there is no encumberment 
such as patents. most RPZ implementations are free to install and 
operate. some RPZ feeds are free to subscribe.
