In response to this concern, the National Association of REALTORS® offers these resources to help facilitate the understanding and implementation of proper listing content management.
The purpose of these resources is to assist brokers, agents, and multiple listing services in understanding the various assets they each control and how to secure and manage the contractual and intellectual property rights of the listing content.
