Correct, **a court** not the terms of the license.
Of course, no one sane expects generic license to cover all possible durations of every possible way of delivery.

Well, your first answer was a bit misleading. As in this case (as you want to stick with context) there was no offer at all, there's no point in discussing releasing without introducing proper distinction between those two.

Quote:
I.E: Amazon may delay providing you with the sources you requested until 3 years after they where last used in a distributed binary.
Afterwards (greater than 3 years) they are under no obligation of the license
And this is false. They can only delay fulfilling offer, but then the same legal rules as to every, not only software related, offer apply. If they delay too much, then it's just failure in fulfilling an offer - so it's a violation. If you asked for sources in those 3 years, they still have to give them to you even after 10 years of delaying.

I think it's time to end this discussion - it seems to be centered around problems in communication instead of real content :P
