Yes. If I give THE VERY COPY that the promise was attached to away,
the promise may still be attached to it. If I give you a copy that
I made myself and keep the one with the promise attached to it, the
copy you get apparently have no promise attached to it unless the
copyright owner still wishes to supply it with one.

Not copies that are made after the author decided to stop adding the
permission to new copies.
