'"...a musical album OR track is leaked if it has been made available to the public on the Internet before its official release date; and is still intended to be confidential."

This means that an artist that releases music early is not leaking it, only releasing it early. The only way a leak can be counted as a leak is if someone in the media releases it expectantly. Like I will start doing when music takes too long to release and I already have it on hand ;)
