On what all factors does uploading time depend ?

It depends on

1. Presentation File size (Embedded Video/Audio may increase the file size further).

2. Internet connection speed you have.

3. How busy our servers are.

Who owns the copyright of the content I upload ?

It is owned by the person who created the presentation. You are not supposed to upload a presentation created by some other person.

Is sharing on SlideServe secure ?

It basically depends on the settings you use. It is more secure when you do not turn on the embed code. So uncheck the embed code unless you really need it. Even when you pass on the secret URL to someone, ask them not to post the URL on a public website.

How to adjust the size of the embedded block so that I can prevent it from flowing out of the blog's column.

In the Embedded code you can see that the default block size is set to width="500" height="416". Just change the width and height values to your convenient dimensions.
