Is it illegal to advertise another company on a Social Studies homework without permission from the company?

Question by Big Jad: Is it illegal to advertise another company on a Social Studies homework without permission from the company?
Okay, I know this is the most random question on Earth…..

But for my Social Studies homework (we have to write a news report on Africa), I was trying to make it kind of funny so I put some pictures of Geico and other companies on it….yes, I was trying to make fun of Geico, but I didn’t write anything offensive. Is this illegal or against any rules or anything?

As long as you don’t sell you paper or make profit on it and indicate that the Logo is Geico’s and Geico’s property and you didn’t alter the logo or used it in any other way than to represent the company it should be fine.
