Perhaps taking a look at the copyright of linuxtv-dvb might be inspiring:

=== /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/copyright ===
NOTE about the included firmware dump:

The files Root and Dpram are distributed with the source package. Even if
they contain binary code, it cannot be executed as part of any other software
under GPL because of its technical nature. GPL covers these files as prepared
data accompanying the GPL program.  Their content is to be treated as source
code.  You may use and distribute it UNDER THE TERMS OF GNU GENERAL PUBLIC
LICENSE. Contact 'convergence integrated media GmbH'

the firmware files.
