I am looking for a solution that will prevent online resources (HTML and images) from being ripped off.

I want to make sure that my valuable research reports and photos can be viewed for only a limited amount of time (that I determine) while disabling common options like "View Source", "Save As", "Print" etc.

Does anyone know of a solution that can effectively shut down content piracy?

Yeah, you either dont put them on the web or you put them in a password protected directory and give access to only the people you want to.

so if I oput them behind a passwaord protected directory what is to prevent scoundrels from forwarding the stuff to all the web?

Those right click disablers don't work anyway. If someone wants the content they can get it by going into the temporary internet files folder on their hard drive and get it all from cache. I would suggest the passworded option like Lwd suggested. You can also use server side scripting to allow documents to only stay posted for a certain amount of time as active links.

It is a public internet and if you are going to offer the "valuable" stuff for free without validation you can't expect it not to be abused or used by someone else.

It would probably be best to get some kind of copyright sorted out. That way, you have some legal standing in case someone does steal it.

Personnally, It's more trouble than it's worth. As Rockn says, if someone's really determined they'll rip it off regardless of what measures you have in place.
