I've just received the above-quoted announcement on Debconf-announce.

I am puzzled: I glanced over the mentioned URL and two things struck me
as unclear.

 • The DebConf13 schedule links each talk with videos hosted on
under three formats (high ogv, low ogv, high webm): why another
location (http://www.irill.org/videos/debconf13) for videos under
different formats (webm, mp4)?
Are they the same videos in different formats?

 • The IRILL website claims that the videos are under Creative Commons
by-nc-nd v3.0 fr, which is a horribly non-free licensing choice!
On the other hand, videos hosted on meetings-archive.debian.net are
luckily under an Expat/MIT-like license
which is a very simple and good DFSG-free licensing choice.
Why are videos hosted by IRILL not released under the same Expat-like
license used on meetings-archive.debian.net ?

Please clarify.
Thanks for your time.
