    Why? Doesn't your plugin need to be licenced under GPL and don't we have a right to the source code then? – kero Dec 6 at 14:54

  • That's not the WordPress way (at least not mine). Not a lawyer, still unsure if this is still in terms of GPL. Depending on what your code is supposed to do: create an API hosted in your own environment, then call the API from your plugin. Anything that happens within the API is unknown and not subject of the GPL – kero Dec 7 at 11:08
