Do we have any licensing guideline for Marketing materials?

No. I use Creative Commons CC-BY-SA because is known outside the
software world (although in a very limited way). I do not use the GFDL
because a presentation does not belong to the documentation category.

Surely we agree this is instructional material, the presentation is its
supporting material. that's why I sometimes use GFDL for presentations.

FSF states that: "The GFDL was designed for manuals, textbooks, other
reference and instructional materials, and documentation which often
accompanies GNU software".

Slideshare is very popular, and presentations published on SlideShare
are usually picked up by search engines and are easier to find by
people outside the software industry.

As I wrote, when you publish there **only**, problems outweigh the
benefits. Once again, we should not publish ONLY to SaaS sites that have
restrictive, changing terms of use & conditions. "It's popular" is about
the least valid argument for putting content **only** in such sites. My
***personal*** preference is to not publish on such sites at all.
