In general, lawyers in the US are very conservative.  You provide your
content under the most restrictive terms possible, and only relax
them if you absolutely have to.

In the case of firmware files (or PPD files, or any other support
file required for a device), I've never found a single vendor that
was unwilling to provide us with the necessary files freely, mainly
because it helps to drive more sales... :)  For the companies that
don't, keep asking until they give in or go out of business...
