Framework (x) is under propietary licence, it's API and documentation is publicly availbale for anyone. Commercial use without permission is prohibited.

Customer (A) is licensed to use the framework x and even sells products involving framework x. He is ordering me as a FL to teach one of his own customers (B) about framework x.

I am heavily using the documentation to prepare the seminar. Am I getting legally in trouble? Anyone experience in that?

As you are working on behalf of customer A, you should be covered by their license to train customer B. If this is prohibited, it is customer A who has breached the licensing agreement.

For the sake of CYA, ensure that all expectations are documented, and flag your licensing concern to company A.
