The GPL.

Or, if Apress is not happy with the GPL, the GPL plus a specific permission 
clause to exempt Apress from whatever part of the GPL they are unhappy about. 

If you feel that the GPL needs clarification for the term 'object code', add 
a specific notice stating what forms you consider to be object code (not 
source code) in your interpretation.
