Akretion, David Béal
@abdrahmanThanks to notice it to the community
In such case, create a new module for new features to separate your merchant work from community work.
Have you any warranty on your paid module and insurance in case of broken impact on the database of your customer.
Don't you afraid of possible law pursuits from your customer if your module have a negative impact (data loss or modified) even in the particular case of your customer use ?

Ideally you could work together towards OCA adoption. I assume your module has always been licensed under (A)GPL So anyone can change whatever they want as long as the source is available. To my knowledge you can't impose attribution under xGPL. And they can charge whatever they like for their version. If they make money with your work, good for them - it's fair in the GNU spirit. If they'd made a closed-source fork that's another story: then you'd be entitled to sue. But even then a direct and polite approach is said to give the best results. In other news, Heonium's been officially out of business since october : http://www.verif.com/societe/HEONIUM-482592656/
