Denying multiple logins to restricted pages

Hi All,

I'm creating a site that requires people to register and login for access to
certain pages.
I want to stop users from giving out their username/password to other people
by denying access to more than one person using the same username at the
same time.

I have a few ideas in my head, but would really like to hear from others
that may have already tackled this problem and what solution they came up
with.

Also, I'm still debating what to do when I find out that indeed two (or
more) people are trying to use the same username.
Do I deny the latest attempt ?
Do I accept the latest attempt and then reject requests from all other
people using the same username ?
etc.
