You should do a quick google search for "Software Rights Management" or "Software License Protection" or similar. There are many third party libraries you can purchase to accomplish this. I myself am primarily a .net developer, so the solution I use may not be of any use to you (Xheo - I use both his obfuscation/encryption system and licensing system).

If you roll your own copy protection scheme it will likely be easily defeatable.

The problem is you need a reliable and trustable time.
