It is the owners of the distribution rights that do not allow redownloads, not Apple.

Hmm, Apple didn't state that as an issue to me, and they did ultimately allow me to re-download my audiobook. Can you cite the rule/copyright law from somewhere? I ask not to be difficult but because I am genuinely interested.

That is 100% unacceptable.
iTunes deleted my books from the phone because it is just so cumbersome and unusable, and now I lost hundreds of dollars because Apple is unable to design software?!?!

Look up your purchases on iTunes, record the order numbers, and then contact Apple. I agree, not acceptable. I protested and got my book back. I think it's important to document the purchases. Good luck!

Difficult to comprehend why Audible is able to permit customers to re-download audiobooks and Apple cannot. Good reason to buy audiobooks from this competitor (a unit of Amazon) rather than from Apple, although using iTunes for recorded books is much less cumbersome than the Audible downloader. Apple needs to fix this. And, until the fix, alert buyers at the time of purchase, that the recorded book can be downloaded only once.
