Law: Section 6: Use of MLS Logo by Nonmember Participants

In any state where law requires that brokers (principals) who are not REALTORS® be admitted to the multiple listing service of an association of REALTORS®, or in any association which has voluntarily opened its MLS to nonmember brokers and/or appraisers, the official registered multiple listing service logo of the National Association should not be used by such a non-association member. Such use would be a misrepresentation and would violate the registration rights of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, the lawful owner of said collective service mark. Where such non-association member advertises that he is a member of the multiple listing service of an association of REALTORS®, the multiple listing service may properly require that such participant of the service additionally indicate in his advertisement that he is not a member of the association of REALTORS®.
