Dan,

I don't think that such method exists. Beware of creating anoying 
methods for this will just piss up you users. A simple scheme is the 
serial number tied to an email, if it leaks, at least you'll know who 
leaked it. I don't think no one will ever be able to enforce good 
piracy protection, even hardware keys can be cracked. The best practice 
is be just with your price, create  simple serial number scheme. Create 
quality apps that make people want to buy (Like: "he is such a nice 
guy, let us help him.")

cheers
