I'm looking for some feedback on what people are charging for plugins when they are used on a license server.
Single seat license = $100
10 seat license = ?
50 seat license = ?
100 seat license = ?
What are individuals and companies willing to pay relative to the singe seat price for a multi-seat license?

It's a great question, that I wish I'd seen answered (or some opinions on) before I started working with multi-seat licensing.
With that in mind, the scheme that I've been using for several years now goes something like so:
First off, I charge a flat 'base' cost for the first 5 seats of a multi-user (License Server) license... the cost is basically 3x a single seat cost (even if they only had a 2, 3 or 4 seat license) but covers the first 5 seats. I then sell additional 5-seat blocks for what would be the normal single/stand-alone price...
Riptide Pro multi-user Base License - $150 (covers up to the first 5 seats)
each additional 5-seat upgrade - $ 50
...now for a few comments/observations...
...I have no idea what MAXON (for example) or any other 3rd party developer charges for multi-seat licensing, so the above is just what I've come up with. I think the most important point is to come up with something reasonable - and simple to explain - for both you and your customers and standardize on that - it'll save you a lot of headache when it comes time for upgrades.
