    I have an existing plugin that has been deactivated because a new version was released. I quite liked the features of the old plugin.

    Can I modify/build upon this plugin without it being deactivated again by the original author

    You can, sort of.

    If I'm right, the way to do it is to download the old plugins ZIP file and then eidt it to change the name of the plugin in it's main PHP file then change the name of the folder and the main PHP file to a new name. If you do that it should look for a different name in the plugins DB so you should be safe enough.
