Preaching - who owns it?

I was wondering, when we preach, who owns that message once it has been preached. We all know that prior to preaching it belongs to God, whilst preaching it belongs to him...we surely agree on that.

So why do so many ministries sell their sermons. Lots of very good sermons are given freely, but when you want to download them there is a charge, or if you want a tape or CD, you pay.

I don't mind paying, but when is it right to charge, or should we just charge for materials and time.

The bible has no answer for this, Paul never sold DVD's and Jesus never stayed round long enough to reap any financial gain.
