CodeCanyon WordPress Plugin with Source Code Obfuscation in PHP files


I just purchased a WordPress plugin on CodeCanyon which had some of the PHP files contain obfuscated code. The main functions file (121kb) for the plugin is completely obfuscated.

I have never seen this before in any plugins or themes that I have purchsed from CodeCanyon or ThemeForest.
Is this allowed under the Marketplace Rules?

As far as I’m aware, that is not allowed… but the rules could have changed.

It’s probably best to open a Help ticket and ask the experts:
