If that would be true, forking open source would be impossible.
Any patch patch away from the point of fork would infringe the authors copyright
then. But modification is explicitly allowed and the modified lines do not
result in relicensing.
Thus, I see no problem.

And I will not discuss license-bikeshed-bulls*** any further.
No offense! (really)
