So Best Buy can sell pirated software?
What does pirated software have to do with anything? The question is whether a box of, say, "OpenSUSE box set" bought from a shelf at Best Buy confers any different set of rights to the purchaser than the same box bought via Amazon.com or directly from SUSE. It is clear that the purchaser can request source code from SUSE. It is surprising, if not "ludicrous" to find an obligation for Best Buy to keep and distribute version-matched source code for every program that might be found on a disk in the OpenSUSE box.
