No, that's not right. You are thinking of this as a derived work

I can say "you may distribute my binary if you pay me $100". I can
say "you may distribute my binary but only if you pay John $100". I
can say "you may distribute my binary, but only if you never eat
artichokes again." I can say, "you may distribute my binary only if
you distribute yours too."
