IANAL but I believe that is correct, you are simply removing a 
permission which is OK. But to be 100% safe you really should check with

I'm pretty sure has dealt with this question before; you 
probably want to check the GPL FAQ (I think they also have a forum for 
asking this sort of licensing question).
