If I remember the GPL correctly you can do that - just use Roundcube (or 
any other GPLed software) and make changes to it. If you sell the 
software you have to also release the changes. Freedom to use it.

Nevertheless the copyright will never belong to you or your company, it 
always belongs to the person who has written the code, in case of 
Roundcoube a group of developers.
