[wp-hackers] Disabing a paid extension of our plugin if the licence is not renewed, is doing this too agressive?

If you did that to me or a client, I'd never buy a plugin from you again, that's for certain.

So... yes, way too aggressive. Yes, I'd advise strongly against it.

Re-read the GPL and Plugin Guidelines and ask yourself if you'd want a plugin author to do that to your WP site... then provide enough value that users happily stay current on their support/upgrades license (those are fine to disable if  not paid for, but plugin code is not).
