So there are many websites which uploads video courses in their websites in free of costs that are downloaded from other paid websites like Udemy, Skillshare, Lynda etc. Though this courses are given free of cost actually they are paid courses.

  1. Is it permissible or haram for me to download courses from the free websites and learn from them??
  2. Is it permissible or haram for me to share those courses with other peoples so that thay can have those courses??

I think it should be haraam in that sense that you are not paying the royalties or payments you are supposed to give. As I remember a famous hadith of prophet Muhammad, " Pay the laborer before his sweats have vanished". The same goes here! isn't it?

Check the policy, it is ok to share to some extent. That is not a problem if you do it legally. Or just ask them to clarify to what extent you want to share them. Mostly students get a discount when you ask them.
