1.  I note without particular objection that your question is off-topic
for this list.  Like practically all other recent posts, it hasn't had
anything to do with OSI or examining candidate licence for
OSD-compliance.

2.  The term "commercial licence" is meaningless:  Practically any
licence can be used in commerce.  You probably mean proprietary licence.

3.  You can answer your question for yourself, if you realise that you
attach a particular licence to an _instance_ of your work.  When you or
someone else then uses a copy of that instance to create a derivative
work, the resulting derivative either does or doesn't suffer from
licence conflict.  The nature and licensing of other instances of your
work has nothing to do with the matter.
