Why do you need copy-back? If there is an active Open Source development
on a product, and there is a source distribution requirement, it is
likely that you can find the source. Only in the case that the product
is deployed and _not_ distributed, for example in the ASP model, would
this term become important. Take a look at the (admittedly clunky) way
that this is addressed in the "Affero GPL".
