Think of it as approaching the unreachable speed of light..
I repeat your sentiment, especially to those who continue to describe "download" as an illegal act, when in fact the illegality is uploading. There are no illegal downloads. Every MPAA and RIAA (etc) case has pivoted squarely upon the act of sharing, and every charge was brought forth exclusively upon instance of the outgoing file. I am frankly baffled as to why "download" continues to be described as illegal, when no charges have been brought against downloads.
