Unfortunately, ERDAS who now owns ERMapper has made it prohibitively
difficult to obtain these files.  The only way to get the SDK is by
individually requesting it from here:

We really can't expect each user who wants ECW and JPEG2000 support in MGOS
to go through this process.  The ideal solution would be for the files to be
redistributed with the GDAL FDO provider.

FYI, there is a license governing those files, which is why they are not
easily avalible. I'm not sure about distribution rules, but there are rules
regarding usage. IIRC you can use them freely (royalty free) for reading,
but not writing. You should verify that you use the files in compliance with
the license yourself, before using the files in production.
