The safest bet is to do the following:

1. Don't restrict access to object/executable 
and also provide a download for corresponding source-code
at the same place on the website
(by doing that you'll be providing it to any third party and
accompanying it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
source-code on the website)

2. Also either include the source-code on a CD shipped with the product
which contains the object/executable that is run in the product(or make
a written offer where it can't be missed, which is harder), or if you
don't ship such CD, make a written offer in the manuals.
