So I Posted 30 Photos on Multiple Listing Service MLS...14 Timber Way Ct Sagamore Forest II 21136

 14 Timber Way Court in Sagamore Forest II, is my latest listing. Located on 3.45 acres, this contemporary ranch home is one of my favorite homes.  I just finished posting the maximum photos on MLS. As soon as these pictures are posted they are branded with the  MRIS copyright. Wish we could change this and be acknowledged for our own photography.

 Does anyone else feel this way?

Waving my hand in the air saying ME ME ME ME ME.  I so hate that when I put photos in the MLS they can be used by them and other agents with no acknowledgment to the fact they are MY photos.

Margaret, I am with you on this one -- I hate not being able to pull those pics to use in other applications with thier (large) imprint across every one when they did NOT "author" those photos.

Good morning Margaret,

The MLS has limited copyright to the listing agent and protects the listing agent. I find it interesting that other agents would be allowed to use them??

Our MLS doesn't do that, but then it's easy for agents to use others photos should they so desire.

Yes, the pics are copyrighted I believe to protect the listing agent.  However, if you are not permitted to reuse your own picture that's really not right.  There is more than one way to skin a cat, so to speak.  I've found ways to use my own pics, altered a bit as not to be identical, as not to breach any copyright laws.  Again, not sure how MLS can copyright something that is not theirs just because they allow you to post the picture on their site.  I wonder if that's legal.  Hmmmm

Lenn, Harley reblogged this post and is having some good comments.Go check it out.

Gail, As the listing agent, I like being protected. I also want these pictures to sell the house. I do resent when other sites use them to promote their company.

Michael, It is the "something else" that is the problem. I want the photos to attract agents and buyers to sell the property.

Gabe, How are your photos protected?

Dorie, Being allowed and just doing it is quite different.

Tish,  When I use MY photos on MY blog..am I infringing on copyright because it has the MRIS copyright?? hmmm

Tammy, I  see you waving!

Margaret - this loooks like a great property. In our MLS it specifcally states that otheres cannot use your photos...but when did that stop anyone? I'm not sure what they say about copyrighting OUR photos - gotta check that out.

I AM curious to see what Lenn has to say and the commentary so heading over there.

Margaret ... You give your data to the MLS - so is giving them the pictures much different?  When your listing hits realtor.com .... look whose picture is on the listing.   As long as the MLS can dictate the rules .... then the ownership issue will continue.  Most MLS "smallprint" assigns a licensing arrangement from the subscriber to the MLS ... with conditions!

Margaret-how can they copywrite work they did not do. Doesn't seem fair to me.

Jeff, Stating that others cannot use your photos...is like stating everyone has to be honest.

Jack, That is the way it is and we have no choice.

Debra,  It is an attempt to prevent others from taking what is not theirs.
