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.
