The sharewarist’s central 
Although there are many people for which the old “honor system” still works, it is better to introduce some incentives to keep the rest of the honest people honest. 
Here a list of possible incentives (you can mix them): 
- stop the software after N days or N uses (you can use the registry or spare files to keep track) 
- place some “nag screen”, i.e. sometimes show a window that remembers to the user that he is still using an “unregistered” release, and he need to register; you can show this screens at startup, at the program exit, every 10 minutes, or when some functions are used. The key is to strike a balance between too often, and not often enough. Remember also to place a “buy” link within this window. 
- if your software manages texts or images you can add some “watermark”, i.e. you can print “unregistered” on all images, or add “created with PippoLippo *Unregistered*” to all texts 
- place some “register” and “buy” options in the menu, and even some buttons in the main program window. 
- add advertising to the trial; the user will register to stop these annoying ads 
- in the registered edition, show the user name in the splash screen / about window
