  1. Be sure to check out the responses to this identical question -- see the first two links below under Related Questions.

  2. The traditional issue has been the use the person is making of the resource. If the person doing the downloading makes money from the download, then it's illegal. If the person copies it, uses it for his own purposes, and doesn't credit the author it's plagiarism and unethical.
