How can I require users to accept a clickthrough agreement before downloading a file via Confluence?

We need to have users accept a legal agreement (and audit that acceptance) before they can download any file via Confluence.  Is this possible?

Hey Ian,

my first shot would be to use Custom HTML and create a script using JavaScript/jQuery that registers a click on the download button of a file and display an overlay/popup with the desired content.
I think the alternative would be to develop an addon that manages the download of files and displays this agreement prior enabling the download.

I hope this helps!

a javascript display is only going to be good if the user didn't copy the download link and shared that around directly. The only way to do the agreement is via a custom plugin that takes over the download url.
