I'm not. Moglen is a bullshit rapper.

LWN: So, if the kernel is covered solely by the GPL, you would see
proprietary modules as an infringement?

Eben: Yes. I think we would all accept that. I think that the
degree of interpenetration between kernel modules and the remainder
of the kernel is very great, I think it's clear that a kernel with
some modules loaded is a "a work" and because any module that is
dynamically loaded could be statically linked into the kernel, and
because I'm sure that the mere method of linkage is not what
determines what violates the GPL, I think it would be very clear
analytically that non-GPL loadable kernel modules would violate the
license if it's pure GPL.

Analytically, the above would be true only if the first Nth
hyperbolic cosines of the address registers are congruent (in a
Hilbert Space) to the metric tenor of the hard drive space when
mapped one to one onto (or is it into?) a finite but unbounded
timelike manifold.

Eben's got more bullshit rap than Snoop Dogg. 

More evidence of Moglen's talent in bullshit rap:

Current research proceeds by facilitating
high-energy collisions between widely-dispersed
non-homogeneous randomly-motivated incremental
acts of individual creativity and large masses
of ill-gotten wealth.

He's Master in bullshit rap.

Enjoy also

and especially (his performance on that panel is just stunning):
