Both these things are commonly done, and it's not up to the tech writer to determine the policy. This needs to be part of the legal contract between company X and company Y. The user manual will show the same logo or brand as that shown in the software itself.

The decision of whose branding is on the software depends on a lot of things -- product support policies, intellectual property issues, and lawyerly stuff that I know not of (and don't want to). Get the right answer for the particular product from your product manager or lawyer and follow it scrupulously.

Hi everybody,

I am new to this list and have been reading most of the e-mails by the
other members. I am glad I joined this list because it is very
informative and also you can share your knowledge with other writers.

Anyways I would like to pop a question and would appreciate a reply for

If company X has developed a software product for company Y and will be
providing company Y with a user manual for their clients who will be
the end users, is it right for company X to put their logo on the
front page ? or should the logo of company Y go in the front page?
