Assume you have a public IPv4 assignment,   and someone else
starts routing your assignment...  "legitimately" or not, RIR allocation
transferred to them, or not.

There might be a record created in a database, and/or internet routing
tables regarding someone else using the same range for a connected network.

But your unconnected network, is unaffected.

You are going to have a hard time getting a court to take your case,
if the loss/damages to your operation are $0,  because your network is
unconnected, and its operation is not impaired by someone else's use,
and the address ranges' appearance in the global tables.
