    You can never protect a design. It's not hard to look at your site, open photoshop and start to make it like yours. But you can always protect so people can't download your pictures.

    Just put a empty .html document with the name index in your picture folder.

    Not if your pictures are displayed in the browser. You can scrape any of those as well. All an empty HTML file would do is block the directory index, which really shouldn't be enabled anyway on a production webserver anyway.

    You can't do a thing to actually stop a scrape on a client side, and that includes any structural HTML, text or images. Flash and Java applets can be used instead, but ultimately these are downloaded to the client as well.

    This also hasn't a thing to do with PHP and is completely client sided. Moving to general web building forum.
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm');

    The only thing you can do is contact the person owning the copied site and let them know that their Indian developers have copied your sites. Playing the "sympathy card" might convince them to contact their Indian designers and express their disappointment. And the reason I mention that is because the Indian designers might have told them that their site is custom and unique (which would then be a lie). If clients start asking for money back because their site was copied, that might turn tables.

    Just a thought.

    EDIT:
    If you need to prove it, try using the "wayback machine" to show them when your site was first put online.
