Then why don't you ask him to make this statement available to the
general public? That is the only way to resolve that dilemma.

Nobody here can trust on a private email you are telling us to have.
Without proof of that email, either by an open statement of Moglen, or
you publishing that email and Moglen agreeing with it, why should anyone
trust you/the email.

Gedankenexperiment: I have a private email from Sun's lawyers department
that states that the combinations is indeed a problem and they already
start in the background a re-licensing.

Proof needed. A private email does not count as long as it is not open.
