  • People invested time, effort, and money into it, and some chucklehead just comes along and downloads it.

"Stuff" is very vague. I assume you are talking pirated music, video, applications etc. Yes, that should be, and is illegal. It is the intellectual property of the creator. It will be done forever, but should also remain illegal.

I'm going to vote it should be legal, because of how vague the question is. I'll download as many cat videos I want thank you very much, however I would have a problem with people downloading copyrighted material.
