A review of MLS® Policy Photos/ Images #4 was recently conducted due to members continuing to use other member’s photos, without obtaining written permission; as per the policy.
Following the review the Board of Directors approved an increase in the fine amount for RAHB MLS® Policy, Photos/ Images #4, from $50 to $250 as follows:
RAHB MLS® Policy – Photo/ Images
4. If a member is using another members’ previous listing photo on a listing without written permission, the photos will be removed, the status will be changed to information withheld until a new photo is provided, and a $250 fine will be levied to the member.
If you would like to use another member’s previous listing photos, you are required to obtain written permission from the previous listing Brokerage and/ or listing salesperson. Should MLS® staff be notified and verify that a member has used another member’s listing photos without written permission, an automatic $250 fine will be levied to the member.
