Google's Flash ad specs:
IAB's advertising guidelines:
Yahoo!'s Flash ad specs:

Some highlights:

* Maximum file size: 150 KB for Google and IAB; 40 KB for Yahoo.
* Animation length must be 30 seconds or shorter.
* Animations can be looped, but the animations must stop after 30 seconds.
* Flash ads must be 24 fps or slower.
* Google allows Flash versions 4 through 10.1.
* Yahoo allows Flash versions 6,7,8,9,& 10 (AS2 & AS3).
* onload play audio is not permitted in flash ads. Sounds played on click are allowed.
* Buttons must have the clickTAG expression in place of embedded URLs. The clickTAG expression must be attached to a button object and called onRelease.
* Loading files from cross domains is not permitted for security reasons.
* The use of Shared Objects is not permitted.
* Loading JPGs, WAVs, and MP3s are allowed and must follow the same rule as additional SWF files of no more than 4 @ 100k each. All additional files must be hosted by Yahoo.

I have also heard that some ad networks only allow SWFs to load external resources using hard-coded IP addresses instead of hostnames to reduce the potential for distributing malware or inappropriate ads.
