I have done several services for clients -Blog Postings re “other companies” and unless we are referring to them directly, meaning not from other headlines or articles from newspapers, articles etc. I definitely urge them to get permissions.
As well, for another client it was RSS feeds from bloggers into a client’s site and I definitely got permissions from all of the bloggers before doing this.
Another instance, would be work I have done for clients and before I use these work examples to show future clients, I have always asked for permissions.
I have a client who does blog posts which are really Case Studies of his clients. In order to do that, he needed permissions to use these Case Studies if they were mentioning his clients.
If you are using these in Training Courses, it would be better to be safe than sorry. If they are clients of yours, they will appreciate you asking them first. If they are just sample Case Studies and you have had no contact with the clients, definitely get their go-ahead before you proceed.
