Is it permissible to download graphics and desktop publishing software from the internet from sites such as peer to peer sites, torrent sites etc and use this software to create Islamic documents and publications for the purpose of sale or for free distribution? Also, if buying this software from places and people who have obviously copied it from the original version and have resold it, is this permissible for the same purpose as mentioned above?
