US Patent 10,000,000 issues on 19 June 2018: COHERENT LADAR USING INTRA-PIXEL QUADRATURE DETECTION to Joseph Marron of Raytheon

The underlying application was filed March 10, 2015 and the invention is directed to a frequency modulated (coherent)
laser detection and ranging system.

A story line within the June 18, 2018 episode of Elementary (titled "Sand Trap") is of interest, for a kind of man bites dog twist. Within, the CEO of a company decides to dedicate the company's inventions on an oil-spill oil recovery skimmer to the public. The leader of the project rebels, steals the company's plans (as well as stealing from other inventors across the globe), but is murdered. Curiously, however, not by the intellectual property theft victims, nor by the sand pirates. Rather, by a seemingly mild-mannered county government employee living by kick-backs from contractors. The actions of the fictional CEO in "Sand Trap" might evoke Elon Musk in 2014 [From Forbes: Elon Musk’s announcement that Tesla Motors (TSLA) is treating its patents as open source is a truly daring move]. As to the county employee, he killed two people, the second by drilling his subordinate county worker through the head with a power drill.

A story line within the June 17, 2017 episode of Instinct (titled "Blast from the Past") has an interesting story line on plagiarism.
