I guess a German Lawyer should reply.It is also my guess that you need an explicit supply contract to establish the supplier relationship formally.
If you do it within a holding company (inner source) that formal relationship is established automatically, even if you don't put something down in writing. In open source, this is not the case AFAIK.
Morally, and the thrust of the law is a moral one, in-kind compensation or just the dependency still might create public backlash.
Confused about open source?
