... I don't think these documents should be released, its a dangerous game and I don't think CR has the money or the power to fight a big corporation like Canon ... but be my guest and prove me wrong.I'm with you - it is a risky endeavour to release NDA'd or internal documents.
Technically there should be a legal issue only for the person that sends/steals them. If you have no agreement with Canon, you're not a Canon employee, etc.. There should be no obligation for you to keep them secret. Unless Canon publicly disclaims their genuineness and sues you for diffamation.
Just because you are technically in the right doesn't mean that it will not take a lot of time and resourses to defend your postion.
