On 'leaked' announcements/news/information:

Is it stealing to read about unintentionally public (‘leaked’) information about material things? I know it’s not gossip, since it doesn’t involve a person, but is it stealing to look at leaked trailers, writing, news articles, etc. since companies don’t want the information to be made public?

I like technology and read a lot of tech sites, so hopefully reading about rumours of new gadgets and viewing unintenionally released pictures/diagrams of the technology is okay.
