Yes. The way to do this "properly" is to buy many copies
from a third party. They deliver to you many pairs of DVDs,
one with source and one with binaries. You split them up
and sell only the binary DVDs to your users. You get to do
this under the first-sale doctrine, and the users have no
one from whom they may legitimately demand the source.
