Private domain registration of course and hosting in an Asian country.
And a public registration in that situation is going to do what exactly?
Oh, yeah, absolutely nothing, because it'll likely be forged, if it's not forged it'll be secondary name you'll have a tough time tracking down, plus it'll be in a country where you either can't get to or can't do anything, because you're not going to China (or Russia or India) to sue and anything else you can do from here can be done with either a public or private registration.
I can understand you're all angry about having your content stolen and out ranking you, but that's got nothing to do with public v. private registration and everything to do with Google not caring enough to put in the effort to get it right. They don't need to know if a registration is public or private to rank the initially discovered version above all exact/near duplicates and then give people a way to submit their original content before making it publicly accessible.
It's really not that difficult for them to do and they don't need public domain registrations to do it.
