Below is a list of the top 10 countries using OpenPAT at this time:
The list is based on confirmed OpenPAT registrations so if you have a lot of people in your organisation using OpenPAT and are surprised your country is not in the top 10, please ensure all your users have registered on the OpenPAT site with your correct organisational e-mail address.
OpenPAT featured in a case in 2015 in New Zealand where it was revealed that the University of Waikato attempted to reinterpret their written IP regulations immediately after discovering the international interest in the software. The reinterpretation was supported at the highest level of the university and would have resulted in updates to the software potentially being boxed-off rather than remaining the property of their respective authors contrary to the written university regulations and the stated OpenPAT philosophy as discussed in the Preface of the 2009 Quick Start Guide.
Given the years of prior investment and support of other universities and companies in OpenPAT, Simon Spacey refused to accept the reinterpretation of the written IP policy by Waikato University which he described as an IP Fraud contrary to §240 of the New Zealand Crimes Act 1961 and around a month after first refusing to accept the reinterpretation he began to be cyberbullied through fake websites, digitally altered photographs, the university newspaper, e-mails, Facebook and social media forums by people at the University of Waikato for reasons apparently associated with crab mentality (but compare the facts with the Morgan analogy). The university knew who the key cyberbulliers were but denied that and refused to even e-mail their students and staff to discourage the cyberbullying and encourage responsible use of technology in the Computer Science department.
After around a year of constant bullying and Simon Spacey not yet resigning having exhausted all internal channels, Waikato University insisted he attend mediation with them on the stated basis that his continual requests for help with the workplace bullying, which were all refused, constituted "minimal trust, confidence and respect for [the] employer". No other allegations or disciplinary actions had been formally raised against Simon Spacey so the mediation only concerned his requests for help and the University's assertion that an employee asking for help with IP Fraud, bullying and cyberbullying constitutes a potentially actionable "minimal trust" in the employer in New Zealand.
The mediation failed to prevent, and indeed resulted in, external escalation as a next step for Simon having exhausted all internal channels in trying to obtain help with the IP reinterpretation and cyberbullying issues at Waikato University. The authority submissions for that external escalation are on the public record under the principles of Open Justice, a point insisted on by Waikato when they strongly objected to a victim of their cyberbullying being given name suppression to prevent additional cyberbullying against him. The publicity that followed this and similar cases including  helped ensure that cyberbullying soon became a criminal offence in New Zealand with a "huge majority". However, the new legislation does not yet have an enforcing body and Simon has already described it as being well-meaning but "unenforceable and full of holes".
Additionally, to prevent speculation on the project status and to correct errors recently published by the local newspaper in Waikato, we can also confirm that, Simon Spacey has had to raise a new case  against Waikato University to address the evidence supported allegation that:

3S was the original version of the efficient, small and flexible program analysis framework that evolved into OpenPAT [1, 2]. 3S was written in Python by Dr Simon Spacey at Imperial College London and Cambridge University in the UK.
3S is not being updated any more (OpenPAT has far more features and is a better design) but a historic vesion is available for download through the link below.

OpenPAT.org is the home of the free open source Performance Analysis Toolkit. OpenPAT is extremely simple at less than 1000 lines of toolkit code yet capable of obtaining accurate dynamic runtime path information for any compilable program with its efficient static instrumentation process.
OpenPAT comes with a set of innovative tools to analyse software and help you identify:
