According to the MLS Rules in order to use a picture from another listing that is listed by another broker, one must obtain a written permission from the Copyright owner.

So today I ran across a listing where another agent used my photo in his listing (F10169454). I guess that he thought it was okay if he flips it and covers the watermark that I placed on the original picture. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

My Original:

The one he posted on his listing:

I even gave his broker a courtesy call and advised him to have the picture removed so that I don't have to report a violation, he claimed that its is not a violation. So, violation is reported.

I guess I should have included in the Suggested Error Correction to fine the agent, as they should if it is not the first violation. 😎
