So, I want to relase some software I wrote but not the code. I also do not want people selling it under another name or its name either.

What licence options do I have, all the GPL ones are code focused.

A few simple & quick idea's: (as in 'Protect what you have', a paper license is just simply ignored)
- Put the name, checksummed, in prominent places in the UI, and on/in any output created (if possible).
- Put some kind of licensing scheme in place, like the one by DC member josant, in his NANY2012 entry

It sounds like you just want to release it as freeware -- free but no source code.  Sounds like a pretty standard freeware license.
