I have several expired FG devices, one of which was activated with a license purchased from a vendor outside of my area, is this legal?? Fortinet official office in my area contacted me and told me that this is illegal, so they will report the activated device serial to Fortinet company and they will block my device, is this procedure legal?? Any advice?
Sounds strange to me - you can even buy used Fortigates from the eBay, and as long as the original owner answers Fortinet email asking for account transfer, there have been no issues with that, be the same country or another continent.
One thing though - if any of the regions you are talking about are currently under sanctions, like Iran or Russia, then yes, account would be blocked, not the appliance Fortigate itself.
I wrote a FAQ on buying a used Fortigate recently, may be of help here:
