Ah.. So can you instruct the technicians to not distribute the source
of the server outside the company?

To be clear, in my scenario, customers would be connecting to a
server for some ASP application. The VNC server they would be 
connecting to would be running a modified VNC server. The ASP might
make some modifications to the client too but those changes would
obviously include source for those modifications.
