Hop on over to your copy of the Copyright Act and show us.
Who am I supposed to believe? You or my lyin' eyes?

17 USC 106, of course.

    (3) to distribute copies or phonorecords of the copyrighted work
    to the public by sale or other transfer of ownership, or by rental,
    lease, or lending;

Copyright in a derivative work is held by both the original
author and by the author of the derivative work, and therefore
distribution of a derivative work is the exclusive right of
both of the authors of the work.
