Perens is a self-appointed open source activist who claims to be "looking out " for independent developers.
Perens also blasted the US Patent and Trademark Office for failing to enforce its own rules.
All patent applications are signed under penalty of perjury but, although Perens claimed that there have been numerous cases of patent applications where the applicant knowingly copied previously published work, the Patent Office has failed to enforce those cases.
Perens called on the legal community to help him file a test lawsuit.
