Skype is fine. You will not be banned for using it.

As Satoru, Jmcmatrixs and Tito Shivan have stated, using Skype will not cause any issues with regards to VAC.

Would be kinda strange if a voice chat program would trigger VAC.

I always find interesting how some people just are over-cautious about legit programs causing VAC Bans. And how cheaters end up on the other end of the scale, utterly downplaying the risks of using cheats triggering a VAC ban.

But, as the advice i like to give: 'Better Safe than Sorry'
(And asking things up never hurted anyone)

Shouldn't cause any problems. I believe that if a program does not interfere with Steam, VAC, or whatever game you are playing it should be alright.
