Pretty much nothing. You can ask for it all you want, and they can say
no all they want. IANAL, so I've no clue who's in the right, but if
you really want it and they say no, pretty much the only thing you can
do is take them to court and let the court decide if you're entitled
to the source or not.

 I can't speak for FFmpeg, but I doubt there's anything anyone in the
FFmpeg project can/will do (aside from putting them on a wall of shame
or hiring a lawyer and suing).
