DC2XT is not a U.S. callsign, so it's not the FCC he'd be worrying  
about.  With a "DC" call he's in Germany.

As to his original question, he'd probably be best off looking on a  
BitTorrent site, like Pirate Bay.  I'll leave the legality of that  
approach in his native country up to him to determine.  Fair use laws  
vary greatly with jurisdiction. Unfortunately here in the U.S. it's  
generally legal to make recordings for your own use, but sharing them  
with others is frowned upon and sometimes draws unwanted civil  
lawsuits from companies with no sense of humor.  The NFL's latest  
target has been churches who hold public big-screen Superbowl parties,  
to give you an idea.
