comment Can someone patent someone else's invention?
@todorojo Case 1: I had an invention but someone else filed the application before me, does this "patent protection" protects me from future claim, or I can claim that I was the actual inventions, as have evidences in published materials. Case 2: someone has invented something and reported (instead of filing a patent). If I patent the invention for myself, does this hinder the actual inventor from any claim (as I was the first who officially patented).

@todorojo What's the difference? I can be person A (original inventor) or person B (invention thief). I want to know what is the base of legal judgement for a patent lawsuit? First application received at the USPTO or actual invention (to prove it with published materials in media). In other words, if someone has no intention to patent his invention, can someone else patent it legally? Again, in other words, does the USPTO care if one is the real invention, or it just recognizes the first one who brought the invention at the office (no matter who has invented)?

It is no about patentablity of a code, but patenting the code is not useful at all. The discovery/invention is the idea. The idea should be patented, otherwise, anyone can write a new code based on the idea having no connection with the patented code.
