When you use Nero Burning ROM, you may find a "Nero Patent Activation" window appears. This appears when you have a pirated version of Nero. If this error occurs, you have been a victim of software pirating. To stop the Patent Activation, you must uninstall Nero, purchase a new serial number and reinstall the software. You must make sure you purchase the software from the official Nero website.
