I've wondered that myself, which is why I haven't answered the question yet. With a little bit of Google searching, I think that a premium account is a way of saying the person bought Minecraft. They're not playing for free with the Classic version, nor are they pirating the game. A person has a premium account if they spent the money to get the full version of Minecraft.

To answer the question, I do have a premium account for Minecraft. After watching several series of Let's Plays online of Minecraft, I knew that I wanted to at least try the game. But the free version of Classic just wasn't enough. Finally, after weeks of debating, I bought the game and haven't regretted it. It's well worth the thirty dollars to me.
