Title: Downloading (Quranic) Audio, (Islamic) Books, (Islamic)Video's and such| H-or-H

Assalaamun'Aleykum brothers and sisters,

I was wondering if it Haram to download Islamic content which you can buy in the store. I already determined for myself it is haram to download commercial stuff, non-islamic content. But when you speak of Quran, Islamic books, movies and all that such, those things are being sold it permissible to download them for free online. Some books are being published online for free(by the authors theirselves) but are being sold on their webstores and other stores worldwide. For example, take Scheikh Mishary bin Rachid Alafasy, he published the entire Noble Quran with his voice on SoundCloud(download enabled), but sells it through iTunes, this confuses me.

Is it permissible or is it not.
