How do I copy protect software?

What is the best way to copy protect my software with the minimum of hassle for the users, but maximizing revenue for me?
I'm one of the small software writers, and make my living off shareware. Piracy is a fact of life, and it does not much bother me, seeing that I also have some pirated software on my PC.
A short while after releasing my software, it came up on the different crack sites. I'm sure that a lot of people, though they have money to buy the software, go out and download a copy. I'd like a system where the users would prefer to buy the software instead of pirating it. How do I go about it?
