That all depends on how secure you want to be.

A sceme that stops most adventurers, but nor necessarily the NSA
(USA's National Security Agency - credited with having a formidable
code cracking department), is to have the application generate a key,
which they call in to your license department, to - upon verification
of payment - receive a second key (generated by a private app you
don't share with anyone) to unlock the app for a certain amount of
time.

I've implemented this more than once, and we yet have to uncover a
violation of the license agreement.
