By having the matter covered in your initial contract with client or by
negotiating the rights afterward. Some clients are very happy to allow
use of their family information in lectures and case studies. Some
aren't. That is why many contract clauses are negotiable.
In our /ProGen/ study group a couple of months ago we discussed
copyright. Most of us argued ethics trumps law every time. Not everyone
sees it that way. But you should not just assume the client will not
allow you to use their family information for teaching purposes and for
articles. Ask. Negotiate.
The BCG Application Guide states client permission to include a report
in your portfolio is required because the report normally includes
background information supplied by the client, not because the client
owns your report or owns the copyright to the report.
