As the title says, are portal keys sharable across factions (through dropping) in Ingress?

In other words, if a member of the opposing faction drops a key on the ground, can I see it and pick it up?

The answer for this very likely also covers all dropped items. – Daenyth Dec 5 '12 at 20:01
@Daenyth Probably you are right. I will update the question itself, if the answer appears to be generic. – Marco Leogrande Dec 5 '12 at 20:06
