Logs as web data

There's an interesting story about one astronomer using another's logs. Both discovered the same object, but the one who just got the logs from the web was first to announce it.

I'm wondering why there wasn't a mail asking for permission to use the logs. Also, I don't know if the log author was credited correctly. If I find something on a web, however, I assume it was intentionaly placed to public.
