Not really. Every plugin that is made for Rockbox is considered a derivate
work[1] and as such it must be distributed with a GPL-compatible license. It
doesn't necessarily have to be GPL, but the license may not "impose further
restrictions" than GPL.

So, if you distribute a Rockbox version or a rockbox plugin, you must provide
source code upon request.
