You could release your code under a license that retains your commercial rights.

There are a number of products that do this, like QT , for example. The question would be, what sort of clout would the OP have to make it stick, in the event of a license breach?

I don't know about the feasibility or desirability of a phone-home module: That would presumably require a network connection and a permanent key-server, either of which might not be doable. Since the aim is to run on tiny systems, adding resource decryption may be beyond what the device would be able to do. In any case, if its open sourced, then presumably a good developer would be able to work around the issue.
Keep Calm and Carry On
