AFAIK dvb-ttpci-01.fw is maintained actively by Werner Fink, so I guess
that is freely distributable.

I'm not sure of the licenses of the other files. Probably some DVB
developer has more info on this.

Please note that in addition to the
http://www.linuxtv.org/download/firmware/ there are additional firmware
files in http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/dvb-kernel/firmware/

That's not all, some fw files are only downloadable with this script:
