Solution 1

You can't. Source code is just text and there is no way of protecting it other than keeping it to yourself.

Source code is protected by not showing it to anyone who shouldn't see it. What you're probably looking for is a way to protect your distributable binaries. For that, I suggest Ansel Reynard's article on the matter. Even if you're not working in .NET, the article should give you a good idea of what to do in general. Also see the related article by the same author about creating trial versions of your application.
