    You'll risk this problem if you've enabled access to your content via a feed. If a feed is necessary, change the amount of text that each post displays in a feed. That won't stop the theft, but it will shorten what's stolen. Fortunately, there are a number of plugins that can help with that.

    You can also make your content unattractive to the thief by monetizing it with your affiliate codes, your order links, etc. Thieves generally don't like to make money for other people.

    If that fails, try to identify the website's IP address and block it via .htaccess.

    If you cannot turn your RSS off, then set it to display just the summary.
