To avoid such misunderstandings, I suggest to tone down your language
when you are talking about licensing issues associated with some
technologies or products, so that what you write couldn't be
interpreted as saying that there are legal problems which prevent our
use of those technologies and products.

That is a separate issue, which is IMO completely unrelated.  Emacs is
Free Software, and is distributed under GPL, so for Emacs it is OK to
allow users to use other GPL code out there in their programs.  That
there are producers of proprietary software who use pieces of GPL code
in their proprietary products without complying with GPL is completely
unrelated to what the Emacs project can do with this technology.
