Law, Section 6: Use of the Standard Multiple Listing Service Logo by Nonmember Participants (Policy Statement 7.13)

The Logo may not be used by non-association members of an MLS, including 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. Such use would be a misrepresentation and would violate the registration rights in the REALTOR® trademarks of the The National Association of REALTORS®, the lawful owner of said collective marks. Where such non-association member advertises that they are 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 include in such advertisement that they are not a member of the association of REALTORS®. (Amended 11/20) M
