I know I have the ability to prevent viewers from downloading documents which are not native to Google Drive (http://chromebytes.com/1717/prevent-viewers-from-downloading-google-docs-files) however how can I achieve the same effect with Google Drive native documents?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

How exactly are you publishing the native document to the public? – Bibhas Mar 15 '13 at 17:02
The most straightforward way would be to deny them viewing rights. – Jacob Jan Tuinstra Apr 17 '13 at 13:33

Download the documents to your desktop and upload them again thus making them non native documents. You will still be able to make changes to these documents.
