Free plugins can be downloaded from WordPress.org website. But, premium plugins (or Pro edition as they are also referred as in many instances) are not free, and before you can download them you need to buy a license for one of the editions available.
The current licensing system is active from December 1, 2013. To get more information about the old licensing system (in use before December 1, 2013), you can check out this page: Old Licensing System.
Before getting to the individual licensing, make sure to read Terms and Conditions.

All licenses are valid for one year. That includes download, automatic updates, access to support forums, priority support (for developer licenses) and knowledge base. After that period expires, you can continue to use the last version you had downloaded, but you can’t get access to download or support and knowledge base access.
