Downloaded Audiobooks of Majjhima Nikaya?

I found audiobooks of 7 different sutras from the Majjhima Nikaya and downloaded it. I believe they are translated by Thanissaro Bhikku who is also one of the translators for ati? Anyways, I have not found any reason as to why this would be wrong yet I still feel uneasy. What do you guys think?

Hi Strive4Karuna,

There are various freely downloadable audio recordings linked from here:
http://www.accesstoinsight.org/outsources/audio.html
possibly including what you have downloaded.

PS: It's not so much that Ven Thanissaro is a translator for ATI, it's that he has made all of his material freely distributable, so John Bullitt has made a lot of use of them.
