Re:The GPL doesn't work that way

If you give the binaries to a user, then you are required to make the source code available. By the GPL, that user is given the right to study, use and modify the source code.


You cannot, in turn, limit that user from re-distributing the source code.


This is the heart of the GPL. All other items are there to support this basis.
