Re: Question on GPL compliance

But you know? This also affects selling CDs at a conference.

If you are at a confernece giving out CDs, you are not "offering access to copy". So giving them the option to burn a source CD for them wouldn't count. Correct?

Section 3 of the GPL does not seem to permit that:

    distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
    compelled to copy the source along with the object code.

Shipping a CD is not offering access to copy from a designated place,
so an equivalent offer is not relevant.
