Is reading leaks sinful?

I’m a huge fan of movies, video games, and mobile phone technology, so I always read their news. However, many of the articles are about leaked information, such as trailers, images, and cell phone features. Is it sinful to read or watch these things, since it’s like invading the privacy of these companies? I do not see any harm in this kind of leaks, in fact I get even more excited about the movie/game/cell phone that was leaked. Still, is it wrong?


I don’t think that it is sinful. Some companies purposefully leak information such as this.

All right, thanks.

It depends on what your conscience says. Also, I agree with what NFrancis says.
