It is, and it isn't. Depends on your product too. If Windows let people download their OS (actually they do, but they forgot to put ANY kind of access control on it when Vista first came out... they figured an obscure link would be good enough, hahahaha), how many hackers/haters/kids with their parents cc/etc would buy one copy and pass their link around, account details and all, to rip them off? Same with Adobe? Same with anything you can find on demonoid that's already been ripped off.
I would even go one step farther, I would give them a one time only download, and then if they need to re-dl a backup, reinstall, whatever they need it for, I would have them put in a request. Even if it was an automagically handled request, at least it would be logged in the system somewhere and could raise flags based on *too many requests in a short period of time *too many requests from different IPs *and so on.
