All patent applications are signed under penalty of perjury. However, the US Patent and Trademark office disbanded its enforcement department in 1974. So, you can perjure yourself on a patent application with impunity.
Unless it's testimony in a criminal case, or the perjury trap in front of a grand jury, or something they want to prosecute like lying on your tax form, the Federal government is in general lassiez faire about perjury, or even encouraging of it with their reluctance to prosecute, especially perjury committed by a so-called intellectual property holder.
Not just a rootkit, there's also another new patent-encumbered format you don't really need for doing something you'd be better off doing another way, and proprietary firmware that will take away advertised features at some as-yet unannounced date. David Manning says it's "this year's hottest new star!" but I think you'll BE MOVED to consider other options.
