Safely Letting Your Users Post and Upload: The Perils of User-Generated Content

We are proud to announce a Startupfix event: Come to the gallery and bar space at Culturefix at 9 Clinton Street (between Houston and Stanton) to meet up with tech entrepreneurs, investors and journalists. Buy your tickets at Eventbrite: We can't wait to see you, but you are not confirmed to attend until you have purchased your ticket at Eventbrite.

The evening will be full of demos from great new startups and New York successes, including:





  • Jamplify: A social marketing and analytics platform that enables brands to turn their existing fanbase into a more effective marketing force.
  • IndieWalls: A rotating art exhibition in New York City boutique hotels, upscale restaurants and cafes, putting consumers and patrons in direct contact with new local artwork and giving local artists the tools they need to represent themselves.
  • Mani Diaries: An application that allows you to track, manage, and flaunt your manicures and pedicures and admire other users.
  • MakerBot’s open resource for 3-dimensional designs and is the best place to get and share downloadable 3D "Things." This popular site offers more than 26,000 3-dimensional items and has had more than 10.6 million downloads of 3D objects for printing since the site began in 2009. Thingiverse has also had more than 500,000 downloads in the last 90 days alone. If you are looking for inspiration or specific items to print in 3D, Thingiverse is the place you want to visit.




These and most startups include a website or application that makes at least some use of some user-generated content, such as posts, comments, uploaded photographs, audio, or video files. Britton Payne, the Startupfix moderator, will discuss how Internet service providers like the above demo startups can use the DMCA to protect themselves from infringing acts of their users. Brit is an emerging technologies professor at Fordham Law, and general counsel at 30Ninjas LLC

Jay Hanlon, Stack Exchange VP of Community Growth, will talk with Startupfix about the issues that confront a successful user-generated content website, including infringement complaints from copyright and trademark owners, privacy issues, and user relations. Jay is responsible for driving the growth and continued health of the Stack Exchange family of sites, including Stack Overflow, Arquade, AskUbuntu, and the new AskPatents.


  • Beats Headphone Giveaway: Startupfix partner TriNet is sponsoring a Beats Audio headphone giveaway. Be sure to bring a business card so you can be a part of the raffle.
  • Q & A: All of our demos and panelists will include opportunities to find out more specific details about their experiences, so that they might focus on the issues confronting other startups at Startupfix
  • Networking: Culturefix is a great space for mixing and connecting, which is why Startupfix has always been a different kind of demo night.






  • Flavorpill: Flavorpill’s mission is to empower you to lead a more extraordinary life by connecting you with culture, people, and ideas that inspire you.
  • TriNet: TriNet delivers HR outsourcing services that allow growing companies to do what they do best. Small to medium-sized businesses in technology, financial services, non-profits, and professional services use TriNet’s all-in-one solution for human resources, benefits, payroll, workers’ compensation, and strategic human capital services.
  • Culturefix: Culturefix is a bar, gallery and event space that offers a different idea of a public space. It has an eclectic selection of beer, wine and tapas-sized dishes prepared in-house. The gallery and event space is the heart of Culturefix, exhibiting visual and performance art of a wide variety, with the aim that our guests find something new every time they come in.
