Article 16.03: Reproduction

Section 3: Reproduction

Participants or Subscribers shall not reproduce any listing compilation or any portion thereof except in the following circumstances: Participants or Subscribers may reproduce from the Stellar MLS compilation and distribute to prospective purchasers a reasonable number of single copies of property listing data contained in the Stellar MLS compilation which relates to any properties in which the prospective purchasers are, or may, in the judgment of the Participants or Subscribers be interested. However, nothing contained herein shall be construed to preclude the Listing Participant from utilizing, displaying, distributing, or reproducing property listing flyers or other compilations of data pertaining exclusively to properties currently listed for sale with them.

None of the foregoing shall be construed to prevent any individual legitimately in possession of current listing information, sold information, comparables, or statistical information from utilizing such information to support valuations on particular properties for  clients and customers. Any MLS content in data feeds available to participants for real estate brokerage purposes must also be available to participants for valuation purposes, including automated valuations. MLSs must either permit use of existing data feeds, or create a separate data feed, to satisfy this requirement. MLSs may require execution of a third-party license agreement where deemed appropriate by the MLS. MLSs may require participants who will use such data feeds to pay the reasonably estimated costs incurred by the MLS in adding or enhancing its downloading capacity for this purpose.  Information deemed confidential may not be used as supporting documentation.  Any other use of such information is unauthorized and prohibited by these rules and regulations.
