Protecting Intellectual Property

I have developed a model that extracts data from a commercial software system. I haven’t received any help from the suppliers!!!

I have been approached by other users of that software who would like a copy of my model.

It has taken a long time to work out how the underlying database works and I really do not want to hand over my ‘intellectual property’.

Do you know any way that I can supply this to them without revealing the source?

I assume it isn’t possible to ‘compile’ or lock parts of the source.
