Amongst other things, material submitted to SlideShare should not be…
“…unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous,
threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful,
racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages
conduct that would be considered a criminal
offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law,
or is otherwise inappropriate.”
You should also be the rights
holder or have permission to use
the material you submit to

If you are accused of not being
the rights holder, SlideShare can
remove your content and delete
your account…without notice.
But by uploading your content to SlideShare you grant them…
“…a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free,
sublicenseable and transferable license to use,
reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of,
display, and perform the Submissions in
connection with the Site and SlideShare's (and its
successor's) business, including without limitation
for promoting and redistributing part or all of the
Site (and derivative works thereof) in any media
formats and through any media channels (except
to the extent limited by, and expressly stated in
the applicable additional terms and conditions for,
Premium Services offered by SlideShare).”
That means SlideShare can use your
content any way they please in
relation to their business...without
paying you a cent.
The material you post to SlideShare can't be overtly
commercial or consist of advertising...
...but it is OK for SlideShare to run ads next
to your content.
Unfortunately you don't get a cut of the cash.
