That last part is correct, it is person B's responsibility not to
distribute the work in a way that places additional restrictions upon it.
Providing a URL to an unprotected version is not sufficient, because
Person B has no license to distribute a restricted version within Second
Life. Including a URL doesn't magically grant them such a license to
distribute a version under terms other than the CC-SA allows.
