You won't find any. Such a license violates clause #3 of the Open
The license must allow modifications and derived works, and must
allow them to be distributed under the same terms as the license
of the original software.
What you want is too restrictive to be called "open source".

that cooks with olive oil, and the part that cowan at ccil.org
cooks with butter. --David Chessler
