    Uploading it would certainly infringe Microsoft's code of conduct, so doing so does carry the risk of suspending your Skydrive and maybe even your whole Hotmail/Outlook account:

    Thanks crash, i got my answer (its ridicilous)

    SkyDrive is connected to your Microsoft account. If Microsoft suspends your SkyDrive, you also lose access to any connected Outlook or Office software or Windows Phone and Xbox 360 devices. This incredibly strict code of conduct could end up cutting off other services you depend on.

    You will not upload, post, transmit, transfer, distribute, or facilitate distribution of any content (including text, images, sound, video, data, information or software) or otherwise use the service in a way that:

    • depicts nudity of any sort, including full or partial human nudity, or nudity in nonhuman forms such as cartoons, fantasy art or manga.

    • incites, advocates, or expresses pornography, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity, hatred, bigotry, racism, or gratuitous violence.
    Google has rules against “publishing” (read: sharing) content that includes sexually explicit material, bullying, violence, and more.

    there was a recent thread on reddit with a couple people up the food chain on Skydrive. They said they don't have a problem with it as long as its set to private. You get into trouble if its public. I think they ran the article here or maybe it was wmpoweruser.

    Here is the snippet from it. I can
    tell you what we actually do here (how we technically implement our policy).

    We don’t really have any interest in what’s in your private files. The only exception here is where we’ve stated what we have a zero tolerance policy for child exploitation and we proactively scan for content uploaded to SkyDrive using technology called PhotoDNA (https://forums.windowscentral.com/e?...token=CSmqeeaT). You can read more about this technology and what it’s used for at Microsoft as well as at Facebook and now Google to detect these images and catch criminals.

    However, when you share your private files on the web, we do have an interest in making sure that the content you are sharing is not offensive in nature to the public at large. So we have mechanisms for people to “Report Abuse” in which case we’ll review the content and ensure it’s not offensive. We also have algorithms that attempt to detect “nude” shared content and disable sharing providing customers with a mechanism to contest that action. This is akin to “virus scanning” in that it’s heuristic and therefore not perfect.

    But, the stated terms you quoted above from the ToS really applies to “Shared” content and not private content stored in your SkyDrive. Our view here really stems from the fact that we view SkyDrive as your hard drive in the cloud, and we believe it’s important to behave that way (with the exceptions called out above).
