Been there, it sucks. What sucks the most is when G is not acting while it's evident the piracy.
You should... you must: watermark your pictures. As for the text there is little you can do unless they are copying it 100% as it is.
Post content constantly so G bot acts more often, won't discuss the details: it is that way, you will get indexed faster BUT use reporting tools to spread the word you have new content, like RSS pings. Also try the pushubhbushubb hub whatever that's called.
The goal is to get YOUR content indexed FIRST than anyone else. I don't know about your sites so don't take it as "I'm saying you are there" but many sites have good content but fail to get indexed fast, as they should, this way others can monitor and copy, and win the race appearing as if they published the content first.
In my case the text has a lot of value but the images are unique, so watermarking them has helped a lot to stop the piracy. Certain niches make the content worthless without pics, like diagrams per example, or medic images just to say something.
(This may be a topic for the SEO forum as opposed to the AdSense forum, since it doesn't sound like it's AdSense publisher related)
True. I believe that while they show Adsense on their site with your material you could use, again and again the "report" tool on the ads and other forms to deal with it inside Adsense.
