Which license should be bought for Multi-site?
Extended license should be bought for Multi-site. http://codecanyon.net/forums/thread/wpmuwordpress-multisite-plugin-licensing/39780 “Yes – they would need to purchase the extended license. Jeffrey”
What about trackback spam?
Users rarely use trackbacks because it is manual and requires extra input. Spammers uses trackbacks because it is easy to cheat here. Users use pingbacks very often because they work automatically. Spammers does not use pingbacks because backlinks are checked. So trackbacks are blocked by default but pingbacks are enabled. You may enable trackbacks if you use it in [Settings] = [Anti-spam Pro] section. You may read more about the difference between trackbacks and pingbacks.
