For stuff I have in my portfolio, where it was done for a client or
employer, I make a point of asking for permission to include samples
in my portfolio. Generally, I make a global request. That is, do
they have any problems with me including samples of the work I've done
in my portfolio. If they do, they'll tell me and I know not to use

For material that was not done for a client or employer, I don't
normally have the same concern.
