Under what statue/laws would he be breaking? It's a pet peeve of mine that people throw around the word "illegal" when it would most likely be a civil contract manner.

First of all, it is illegal to "sell" any hardware OS that Brocade owns the property rights to, this includes the older Foundry code. I would highly recommend that nobody takes this road with you. Technically speaking, it is also illegal to "share" any access information with someone who is not an authorized user under that service contract which allows access to the sites. If someone is found sharing their access with a non-authorized user, they could potentially be denied access also.
You best bet would be to contact Brocade and get an authorized copy of the software you need. Just to let you know, you will also need the boot image for your targeted software image before you can successfully perform your upgrade.
Thank you in advance.

Can anybody share/sell most recent firmware for my device? Because i'm
ready to buy support contract from Brocade just to support single EOL
Since many of you can have contract that allows access to KP Foundry
portal (legacy IP products), i hope someone can help me.
P.S.: The latest firmware at the 11/2010 was a FES 04.1.01c (i.e.
FES04101c) according to information that i got from Brocade support.
