But what he'd be distributing is the symposium itself. Whether B is a derivative of A is irrelevant. He still needs permission to distribute A, and GPL only gives that if the other works in the symposium are also under GPL.

Not only does B fall under the GPL. So does the wife, kids, family dog and all your bank accounts. The GPL is even more infectious than the AIDS virus. So powerful is the binding effect of the GPL, it is rumored that Hillary Clinton is using the GPL to harvest votes in the Democratic caucuses.
