In my answer to "How to write a white paper for a non-academic". I mentioned that I know a true story, an example of such a situation with a "happy end". Now, it was requested that I relieve more information about this, which I originally didn't want to.
What do I know: I know who are the authors, I know one of them in person (from a conference) and he made a conference talk from where I know the information. I know quite well the topic of the papers.
My question: Is it non-ethical to publish this information here?
My view of pros: it's all positive, therefore it's not really speaking behind their back.
My view of cons: I don't want to be a paparazzi that publishes such information on a random webpage/blog/... without the people's consent.
