If you use custom taxonomies there's a high chance you also use custom post types. Forcing people to buy this to be able to use it on custom post types is indecent. I hope you go bankrupt. Seriously. This don't belong in WP repository.

Great for making categories required , so users can´t publish without selecting a category.
