I have a colleague who recently joined our team. They're quite keen and want to help out a lot. They've sent out emails to the team with links to a network folder that contains copyrighted/pirated material relevant to the team's work.
This is obviously against company policy. They should have known this as they've been employed with the company in another department before they joined our team. However, I don't know them that well, so I feel I'd be overstepping the mark if I tell them to remove the files and not do that anymore.
I've informed my line manager about it on two occasions, and their response was I should take responsibility and inform the colleague. I am not in a managerial role, I am just a peer although I've been in this team longer.
Am I right to refuse to carry out (what seems to be) the task of my manager?
