    Science is competitive. If you've ever worked with scientific data sharing you know that scientists are totally paranoid about unpublished data. And history shows they're justified. Watson and Crick weren't entirely up front with Rosalind Franklin about how they were using her data. Later they stiffed her on the degree of credit she deserved, minimizing her contribution even though they'd have had no chance of being first to publish without her xray data.

We all agree on the necessity of compromise. We just can't agree on when it's necessary to compromise. -- Larry Wall
