Apollo Astronaut Lovell's sale of Apollo 13's logbook contested by Nasa

The quiestion is; does the Apollo 13 logbook belong to Jim Lovell, NASA, or the American people?
Apollo 13 commander James Lovell gives reporters details in April 1970 of his crew's harrowing return to Earth after their spacecraft was damaged on its way to the moon. Next to him is astronaut Fred Haise.
Lovell, now 83, auctioned off this mission log book below from the legendary mission.
Astronauts were not paid as much as one would think; they got paid their military rank and hazardous duty pay only for going to the moon.
