They're only obliged to give the source to the people they distribute
the binaries to, or who accesses the system over a network, as I
understnad it?  So Company A gets the source from C-R-U under those
terms and uses what they got, unmodified, from «upstream» and as I
understand this subthread, they're under no obligation to then publish
the source?
