Default Disable File Sharing?

So I go to school and have a laptop that was given to me from the school. And anyway I have a game and it is pretty big so I want to give to other people but make them pay for it but when I give it to one person he will share it with everyone. Is there anyway I can disable him from sharing it with others so everyone has to pay?

So, is it a copyrighted game which you're trying to sell to your school mates?

Is this a game that you created (i.e. programmed yourself from scratch) and own the license to?

If so, then you'll need to implement some sort of licensing mechanism.

If it is a game that you do not have the license to redistribute commercially, then sorry, but that's illegal and you can't do that.
