   3. The license must allow modifications and derived works, and must
   allow them to be distributed under the same terms as the license of
   the original software. [1] 
           
Can you please explain to me how #3 doesn't require modified and 
derived works to be distributable under the same terms as the
non-modified version?  
           
The 'them' in this case clearly refers to the modified and/or derived
works which must be able to be distributed under the same terms as the
license of the original software.
