Can i share Packet Tracer with my collegues at work, or is it only intended
(legaly available) for academy users?

Depends how you mean share?

The EULA states amongst all the other legalese -

"Subject to the terms and conditions of the End User License Agreement  ...
Cisco grants Academy a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable license to
distribute (but only in the manner permitted in the following sentence) the
Software ... to Academy's students, faculty and alumni solely as required to
provide Networking Academy-related instruction"
And Cisco
"... grants to User a royalty-free, nonexclusive, and nontransferable
license to use the Software and Documentation solely to create simulations
for use in connection with Cisco Networking Academy."

The key thing to remember that PT is not a commercial network simulator,
there's lots it doesn't do, and that is a learning tool that has lots of
features that are not at all useful for commercial simulators.

As long as you are a Networking Academy student you can use it for your
learning purposes, demonstrate it as a learning tool to others, and perhaps
even let them try for themselves - but I would not recommend distributing it
in a work place. (Other than in a Networking Academy)
