Suppose I possess some non-public information about Company X. I want to trade Company X's stock for reasons unrelated to the information (e.g. I believe the stock market as a whole is going to tank soon and I want to get out of the market). This insider knowledge is preventing me from selling my shares of Company X. If I leak this information publicly and the information becomes widely reported, have I eliminated concern for being prosecuted for insider trading?
(For the purposes of the question, I am ignoring any legal or moral liability for leaking the information alone.)
