For comparison purposes: Long ago I lived in an area where cable TV companies charged a fee to cancel service. No, not to break a fixed-duration contract, or to stop before some minimum period of time. To cancel, ever. Obvious result: People who couldn't come up with $50 all at once were stuck paying $20 every month. The cable companies predictably kicked and screamed when the legislature stepped in.
Flawed analogy, which would only apply to a link you were paying for monthly. I imagine those get removed pretty reliably if you quit paying.
Probably harder to find a real life example of a one-time-payment service where there's an expectation that the provider would "remove it later" for free. I know the guy that we pay to hang vinyl banners on our business won't remove them for free (well, if we order a new one, he'll remove the old one).
