[Libs-Or] Dealing with downloaders

I don't have any relevant experience or legal advice, but I can suggest one change that might make your library's policy clearer. What you describe as "downloading" is more accurately called copying. Patrons download materials legally all the time, such as ebooks and digital audiobooks via a subscription service such as Library2Go, so your posted notices may be confusing. 

This is a frustrating situation, and I hope someone has more useful advice than I've supplied.
