WebClient client = new WebClient(); client.DownloadFile(/*<Onwer's site>*/, /*<User defined destination>*/);

Thank you for your answer. I did know of the first statement; however, my situation is a tiny bit different. My program will distribute by downloading the work from the site directly from within the program. Code example:WebClient client = new WebClient(); client.DownloadFile(/*<Onwer's site>*/, /*<User defined destination>*/);
I may be wrong, but that is what I call redistributing.

Not even this should be necessary (though it does not hurt to offer it as an option).
Just download the sourcecode to that application aswell and you should be fine.
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice; keep intact all notices stating that this License and any non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code; keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all recipients a copy of this License along with the Program

I'll try to go by this as much as possible, but with the eventual amount of features of my program, I might not be able to host the entirety of its database at its current location. At that point, though, I might as well have a dedicated private server running for it. but for now, I sense no danger in URL changes or server outages. If it does go down, not only will I find out very soon, a massive amount of Minecraft's player base will find themselves without a use for this feature anyway.
I'd recommend downloading the application and its sourcecode from your own webserver instead though as your current method will cost the other site money without giving them any ad revenue and if they decide to shut down, change their urls or block your application your application will break.
