Stephen Colbert explains US patent priority

Outside the U.S., whoever first applies for a patent will be entitled to a patent on the respective invention (assuming the invention is patentable). Here, we have a different system. The first person to invent the innovation is entitled to the patent protecting it. Steven Colbert was kind enough to explain that to his audience here. Enjoy.
