Contract #1:
    Legacy holder A sells zzz.yyy.0.0/16 to Party B for $1,000,000,
agreed on 3/1/2012

ARIN registers zzz.yyy.0.0/20 to B on 4/1/2012 since B can only justify
a /20

Since A still has rights to the rest of the /16 it decides to sell
another block to C

Contract #2:
    Legacy holder A sells zzz.yyy.128.0/17 to Party C for $2,000,000
agreed on 1/1/2013

ARIN registers zzz.yyy.128.0/17 to Party C on 2/1/2013

Party B sues Party A & C, ARIN etc... for breach of contract since it
purchased the rights to zzz.yyy.0.0/16 on 3/1/2012

The courts decide who wins and who loses...

Hope this helps explain the issues.
