So did you use only older samples? If so, did you also have to disguise names
and identifying information with the older samples? How extreme were your
efforts to protect the company?

Also, has anyone considered taking the confidential and proprietary samples
and just not *leaving* them with the potential employer? (ie, Just have them
in your briefcase, show them during the interview and explain that you can't
leave them.) Is this more acceptable?

Finally, if you have documentation marked confidential and proprietary, but
it's for a product that was canceled, are you on safer ground? Or should you
still be concerned about using it?

thanks, Irulan
