Copyright Issues (if any) when sending translation samples?

I have heard from many of you that a way to improve chances of getting jobs when starting up, and very especially when one has very little experience, is to send several translation samples together with the CV.

I was just wondering. What kind of texts would you pick to send as translation samples? And, is there any copyright issue to bear in mind? For instance, can I just translate a news article that has been published in a well-known newspaper to send it as a translation sample? Would one have to ask for authorisation to translate someone's else text or document to use as a translation sample?
