Licensing & selling an Android app

What are people doing to sell and license an LC-created Android app?
I looked at Google Play, but that appears to use a non-LC-compatible
licensing process. What can be done to restrict illegal app copying,
short of writing a custom app registration process, as would be done for
any desktop app?
Also, I don't believe Google Play's in-app billing system is LC
compatible yet. So that apparently means it is necessary to submit a
version of our app that requires payment in advance by the customer (in
addition to a free test version). Is that right?
Has anybody published an Android app through any market other than
Google Play? For example, Amazon? Is that a better choice?
In our case, we are not focused on using any service/market to help
promote our app, as we can do that directly from our web site. Our app
is highly targeted. Just looking for the easiest way to install our app
on a customers device, and potentially restrict illegal copying.
