comment How to tell if the user is an admin?
By 'safer' all I meant was that it's a much better capability check than the one for options. In case you build custom roles etc, I feel that managing plugins is the last possible permission that you would want to give someone without making him an admin.

Continuing - If they can do it, so I am pretty sure it is legal. I understand that you cannot hide the source-code or not allow people to redistribute it. Again, this is only valid for the PHP code - the JS and CSS that you create does not come under GPL unless you yourself put it under that. So, effectively you can always just tell your users that they can redistribute all the PHP in your plugin as they like - but, the JS and CSS can not be redistributed (see Thesis license for more).

Well, VideoPress (created by Automattic themselves) does not give you any of the code it uses in the WordPress plugin. The WordPress plugin is just a javascript call to their server to process the request and get and serve proper data.

The current hot trend in WordPress hosting is to host your blog directly. You just have the wp-admin as the access to your server/site/everything. In those cases, everything here can and should be done by the hosting guys.

comment WordPress Network Feature
Thanks for your thoughts EAMann. I was not aware of WP-Hive and it's an interesting project - which may just be orphaned because of WP3 like Mike thinks. Considering that I haven't seen any disadvantages here of using WP3 Networks, I think I will take that route on this setup.

That's what I was afraid of - and, that's the route I can't really take since the plugin that I am trying to author is pretty data intensive.

@EAMann: I assume that this will fall under the 'process data' type of a system. I was more interested in trying to understand the mechanisms the current premium plugins that require activation use. The couple that I bought has pretty lax security to the extent where I was wondering about why did they bother even trying to put the activation feature in.
