you can't do it , the out of the box feature cant support something like this , you have to ways to do this :
1- install RMS (Windows Rights Management Services) to set the restriction to download documnets
2- you can start the audit service , and you can know who donload document , update and delete documnets
to start Audit :
On the site collection home page, click Site Actions, point to Site Settings, and then click Modify All Site Settings. In the Site Collection Administration section, select Audit log reports.
Select the type of report that you need:
Content modifications  Reports changes to content, such as modifying, deleting and checking documents in and out
Content type and list modifications  Reports additions, edits, and deletions to content types Content viewing  Reports users who have viewed content on a site Deletion  Reports what content has been deleted Run a custom report  Enables you to specify the filters for a custom report, such as limiting the report to a specific set of events, to items in a particular Web or list, to a particular date range, or to events performed by particular user Expiration and Disposition  Reports all events related to how content is removed when it expires Policy modifications  Reports on events that change the information management policies on the site collection Auditing settings  Reports changes to the auditing settings Security settings  Reports changes to security settings, such as user/group events, and role and rights events
After you run reports on audit logs, you can use standard Microsoft Office Excel features to narrow the reports to the information you want. Some ways in which you can analyze and view the log data include:
Filtering the audit report for a particular date range
Sorting the audit log report Viewing daily retention activity Determining who has viewed or worked on an item and who has downloaded or copied an item Permission history on an item
