In order to cover my own ass, since I was an officer and stockholder of the company,
I performed an IT audit and reported my findings to the president of the company
(who was my boss) He sent back the paper memo with a comment like
"Don't worry about this", with his initials on it.
I took that memo home and filed it in my personal file, in the event that the company
were ever sued over having bootleg software, since in my opinion it was now the
president's liability, not mine - i had performed my fiduciary responsibility.
I'm not certain you had discharged all your responsibility on this.
The company was committing a criminal act and you were complicit in
it. If you'd found out, for example, that the company had been robbing
the bank next door to improve its cashflow you could not ignore it
just because you had a note from the president.
