If they don't upload any info then there can be no download. Also, if they have permission to upload the file to a filesharing service (where it's reasonable to expect the file to be downloaded)...
I don't see how this can be the basis for civil action. They know for sure the file was not downloaded (because they didn't upload it), and the uploader has permission to upload it to a known distribution channel.
I don't really know about that. Don't t hey arrest child molesters on Dateline NBC by baiting them with a girl of legal age who pretends to be a minor?
I hope that the actual law doesn't allow them to prosecute someone simply for connecting but the law is s strange animal.
