No, you have to _cause_ the work to be licensed under the GPL.  That
means that if you give it to others to redistribute, you have to hold
them responsible for redistributing licensed under the GPL, regardless
to who they distribute.

This is a GPLv2 clause.  GPLv3 does not use similar wording.

For whatever it is worth.
