one time i wanted to mess around with a dataset that had been released under a really weird non-license, like "you can look at the spreadsheets but if you touch them you better get permission!!", so i contacted the research team to ask if i could include the data in an open-source project. the lead researcher replied, deeply skeptical of """open""" """source""", convinced i was the agent of some rival academic despite the dataset being publicly readable already.
academia is weird.
