IANAL, but to be safe, you'd probably need to get a release, because in
essence it sounds like you are re-publishing copyrighted work. Just because
the content is two years old and was published online doesn't remove the
original copyright holder's rights.

So, if you were going to republish the article, I'd say you need to get
permission to do it. Otherwise you *may* be putting yourself in legal

Just my 2 cents.

Anyway, I took an editing test today. I was asked to developmentally edit
and line edit an article for a company that was published on the Web more
than two years ago. If I do not get the assignment, is there any reason
me not to use the test as an example of my editing on my website?
