Question on GPL compliance
I'm looking for ways to comply with the GPL without the 3-year
requirement (I don't know where I'll be in 3 years).
Suppose I have an online store that sells CDs of GPL software. People
buy the CD and we ship it to them. One obvious way to comply with the
GPL is to always send a second CD with the sources.
Now, here's another idea. Suppose that when the user clicks "buy" they
get a message: "would you like the sources CD? (extra $2)". If they
click yes we package it too. If they click no we don't, and never again
have to worry about the sources because we did give them a chance. And
because the offer was for a CD, it is an "equivalent medium".
In your non-lawyer opinion, is this an appropriate use of the GPL?
