It's like BMW getting patents on a bunch of names recently like the M7, M10, etc. They're not in production yet hell they may just be farts in the wind of the mens restroom yet you never know. Technically you can argue an idea you mentioned at a starbucks is yours if you can prove it's yours. That engineer was working under HPF at the time so his knowledge and ideas in theory belong to HPF. To up and leave and magically those same ideas show up with a rival competitor is highly suspect.

The operative word right there The management may not have had enough formal education to know what a serious company does in situations like that. I am speculating off course.
