They must make the source code available as required by its license
so that users of the software are free to run it, examine it, change
it, and share it. Whether and how users choose to avail themselves of
these freedoms is not relevant to honoring the terms of the license.

It is still a joke. What firmware or software have you personally ever bothered to examine, change, or share? The whole idea is preposterous.
