Umm what does this have to do with anything?

You claimed Jython is or will be available on Android. It's not and
Jython isn't being ported to Dalvik and it has nothing to do with
patents.  Android might use java a language, but the virtual machines
are very different.  And no expired patents are going to change that
fact.  Android simply isn't going to run the JVM anytime soon.
