Gary Newman (who made the game) is aware of the issue and solving problems on a case-by-case business. Go over to the Steam forums and post a full log of the error and he should get back to you within a couple of days.
Garry Newman placed this error into the game and set it so that only people who pirated the game would get the error.  He posted this message on his Twitter today:
“Just enabled this error in GMod today. It happens when you pirated it. Having fun watching people complain. http://goo.gl/1CkT7 ” 
A person who had the error posted about it on the official forums, and was immediately banned, presumably as it proves they were pirating the game. 
It’s always possible you’re getting this error by mistake. If you actually did buy the game and you’re not lying about wasting $10, try contacting Garry Newman via Twitter or email, and good luck! If you pirated the game, too bad. You should go and buy it.

Waste of $10? You didn’t spend them, because this error only appears to users who pirated the game.
It means you pirated the game. Post a link to your steam page to prove that you bought the game.
You lied about paying for it,
anyways, nice try kiddo. This teaches you a lesson to buy the game legally..
Clearly you didn’t spend $10 on the game otherwise you wouldn’t get this message. Maybe do your research next time
How about actually buying the game lousy thief?
Yeah you were just caught pirating GMod.
Yar har fiddle dee dee
How about you actually buy the game instead of pirating it?
