What is patent Piracy?

While companies have tried to wage war on piracy and stop people from taking games for free, there is still a lot of grey area when people talk about borrowing games and buying used games.

What I mean is this? Although the first to invent system allows inventors to argue that they are the first to invent through an interference proceeding, and thus should be awarded the patent, only a few…
