I was hired as a UI/graphics designer for company A. This is a startup company and the environment is not very professional which I kinda like. But some people who are friends with company A's boss started their own company (Company B) that is essentially an IT training center. But unfortunately the company is not willing to pay for software so they pirate EVERYTHING, or well almost everything.
Now as I understand this is pretty bad in and of itself for a company to do as I know some companies nearby who have gotten a very big fine from Adobe for pirating their software. But recently I've been told to edit videos even though it wasn't really what i was hired to do, but I did it always because I'm new.
But now the videos i have been editing are essentially online courses from udemy that were pirated. I've been asked to remove the watermarks and remove the personal explaining in the video if any. I feel like this is a very bad thing for me to do but I can't see to talk them out of doing it. I have already expressed my displeasure with this and it seems they don't care.
Im asking this question to see if i can come up with a legal reason to present to them to hopefully stop this unethical work.
Company A is located in India, specifically Kerala, south India.
