You cannot lease or rent a piece of code without permision from the
copyright holder. The GPL does not allow leasing or renting code.
The only authorisation is about distributing it.
So they have no other options than _giving_ the software as
part of the leasing, and then they are bound by the source code
obligation toward the recipient.
