Ubuntu CDs contain no sources


I have asked some CDs from Ubuntu and they have sent me their
Debian-based distro for free (as in free beer). However, they contain
GPL-licensed software, including dpkg, but not their sources. I also
couldn't find any written offer for them in my mail package. Should I
consider this an implicit offer valid for three years after receiving
the package? Should I be able to ask them for the sources two years
from now, considering I asked for the package in the last six months?

Or should I consider this a GPL violation? Then, I hope dpkg copyright
holders inforce their copyright.
