Android 4.1 includes a form of DRM for applications downloaded from Google Play, as the developers document says:
Starting with Android 4.1, Google Play will help protect application assets by encrypting all paid apps with a device-specific key before they are delivered and stored on a device.
This will presumably make it a lot harder to identify if someone has copied your code into their application.
