i joined an affiliate program and am doing well with a top spot of SE's. My question is if i create 10 more sites just like it and get most of the top spots on the SE's and the competition complains to the SE's that these are all affiliate sites selling same product or service can it be a problem?

Note, these sites will have all unique content but affiliate product/service will be the same.

Yeah, Adwords will have a problem, but I'm not sure about the others.

Plus nobody will really know unless you get reported...

With this affiliate program i have to use the exact product photos and text. So even though my site logo may look different the products and all discriptions are exactly the same.
A customer may not pick up on it, but i am sure people selling the similar products will.

I would advise to use multiple aff id's and different whois and ip's to dissassociate each site from another if you are worried about dup issues that arise from promoting the same product from different domains.

Regarding whois info, would you recommend just using a privacy registeration?
If i am using the same hosting company for all the sites how do i get a different ip, would creating a new account with the same hosting company solve that?

Thanks for any info.

Cloak the aff links, use diff ips and such...no way google or anyone else cares at all. Private registration has somewhat of a negative effect on ranking so i would recommend just using your friends and family network for whois (not saying you cannot rank with private, just saying it is one of many "flags")

That said, I would rank 2-3 on the top terms, and move on to another area. If you are successful at SEO, why not spread the love? Makes no sense to go for one niche, all 10 spots rather than hit 5 niches with 5 top 2 spots....peace

Unless you can do something, anything, to differentiate the pages this is going to be the biggest problem -- getting caught in the dupe content filter. You might want to consider using unique page titles, unique meta descriptions, unique H1s, unique site structure/navigation and, if possible, a unique intro paragraph on each of the different sites' pages.
