Asteroid convergence

NASA is planning to orbit the moon with an asteroid then mine it. Isn't that what Planetary Resources and Deep Space Industries had in mind? What about the Asteroid Act? Which says if you are first to extract a resource from an asteroid, it’s yours. So is NASA in competition with commercial operations?

I guess they always have been but doesn't that go against their charter?
