As a consultant myself, I have to echo what Michelle wrote. My portfolio materials are mine to use in my portfolio because the clients have given me permission to use them. I do not own them, have no right to distribute them.
Consequently, I guard them jealously.

This is an area where there is so much gray we must tread lightly, take the highest, most ethical ground possible, I think. At least, that's the rule I follow, and it actually makes my life a lot easier. So many difficult decisions
I don't have to consider as a result.
