Neither it is foolish nor it is uselss. You are missing the point
completely. The content in question is not some artwork which can be
mixed and matched by any person just like that. The content in
question is educational material involving scientific facts and data.
If someone mixes and matches the content and starts redistribution,
who is going to verify (or ensure) the scientific accuracy of the
facts and data. Just mixing and matching of educational/scientific
content is dangerous. What if someone mixes it with personal
propaganda or false facts and starts distributing it ?
Secondly, the NC clause is important in a country like ours where
cheap run of the mill institutes mushroom everyday. How do you plan to
protect exploitation in case someone downloads the the content from
net, burns a DVD and starts selling it at price of his choice. In this
scenario, he is building his business on content created out of public
money.I think the current license has clause to prevent this.
As for obtaining the lectures. Have you ever bothered to contact
IIT's to obtain the copy for the college with bad connectivity? Have
IIT's refused ? From my experience, IIT's do everything possible to
have a copy delivered to you. There are email id's mentioned on the
site for Govt aided institutions, write to them. If you think that is
lot of bureaucracy, contact any senior IIT professor to obtain a copy.
The hidden harmony is better than the obvious!!
