This part is incorrect. If has additional requirements but explicitly
states that the combination is compatible with GPL, then it is. Affero
GPL (AGPL) is a example of this.
"Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
under version 3 of the GNU General Public License into a single combined
work, and to convey the resulting work. The terms of this License will
continue to apply to the part which is the covered work, but the work
with which it is combined will remain governed by version 3 of the GNU
General Public License."
