Second is the acknowledgement of the data set's originator in terms of appreciation and legal and policy requirements."

Getting Genetics Done: Stop Hosting Data and Code on your Lab Website
The first gives us some alarming statistics. In a survey of nearly 1000 web services published in the Nucleic Acids Web Server Issue between 2003 and 2009:

Only 72% were still available at the published address.
The authors could not test the functionality for 33% because there was no example data, and 13% no longer worked as expected.
The authors could only confirm positive functionality for 45%.
Only 274 of the 872 corresponding authors answered an email.
Of these 78% said a service was developed by a student or temporary researcher, and many had no plan for maintenance after the researcher had moved on to a permanent position.
