Can I rebuy a DLC of an app for free

Hi guys, like usuall, me and my brother get
iTunes cards and get lots of games, if he buys a game on his iPod, I can get it on mine for free, and same when I buy a game, he can dl it for free.
Can you do the same with DLC's (inapp purchases)?

I bought GraalOnline Classic's DLC and wa wondering if my brother
can get it for free since I got it.

Btw: We share the same iTunes account.

Help please!!!

it should didn't know you could have promo codes for dlc... but i haven't used it yet in my apps... when you get a app with a promo code do you get to rebuy it for free? yes. same should apply with dlc

Free re-downloading only applies to apps, not media. Which is why it's so important to back up your iTunes Library.

Answer has already been given so I'll give another tip: if you lose purchased albums, movies, tv shows etc. contact iTunes support, they will help you so you can redownload it for free.
