We have a product coming out from a new vendor and need to identify which internal forms use it. I suggest a small image of the vendor’s logo beside the link in our forms list, and we email our Legal department for their opinion.

Legal: There is a small risk here but since it’s an internal website it should be fine.
Coworker (who was CCed on the email): I don’t think we should risk it.

My boss decides that it would be easier to make our own graphic, and a couple of us are huddled around a coworker’s desk as she uploads it to our forms list.

Coworker: You guys are all going to jail for fraud!
Me: I made a custom graphic. It’s company property.

We’re sitting in a team meeting the next week and that vendor’s product comes up.

Coworker: You’re still committing fraud!
