Mac App Store step by step instructions just updated.

With the low price of software is it really even worth it
to copy protect your program?  Most software is not
very expensive and it would be like trying to copy
protect a song.  People do not want songs to be
copy protected.

The majority of software I see on the App store does
not have copy protection and I am glad.

Any copy protection you provide can be defeated and
it just becomes a hassle for the honest people who did
purchase it.  Look at all of the music sold.  Even though
some of it is pirated most people will pay for it instead.

If you provide serial numbers don’t you have to spend
time on every item sold to give them a unique number?
The more you sell the more problems and then you
need to let users contact you if they lose the number
so they can use their software.
