Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA): Did Elon Musk Steal This Idea?

The difference in these concepts, from all reprots, is that Better Place does its battery-swap in less than a minute, while Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) new system takes about 90 seconds. And Musk was suggesting that the just-revealed battery-swap concept was in the works at Tesla for years, and not a result of Agassi’s visit. What do you think? Does is matter much where the idea came from or who innovated? Does this adversely affect Elon Musk and Tesla if battery-swapping was actually “stolen” from somewhere else?
