Ted in Indiana says:
After sparring with my local real estate board for years, I'm on their radar screen and they're coming after me with everything, from blacklisting me with brokers, telling agents they don't have to pay me if I use a copyright, telling agents with active listings they have to remove pictures with copyright info on the pictures. In short, they want to shut me down.
Do I fight? Can I report agents that refuse to pay to the police for theft of services? Can I take them to small claims court for not paying their balances? Can I report them to the state licensing Groups? They are hitting me with everything they have to intimidate me into following their orders. While they imply I'm the one breaking the law, they offer no proof. I need all the legal help I can get. I'm reaching out to you first to get an idea for what game plan to follow. Can I use social; media as a platform to gather attention?
It sounds like you are in a feud with your local MLS and there are two issues that you are you are having trouble with:
In summary, as a real estate photographer, life will be better if you comply with the rules of your local MLS. Sure there will be many things you don't like but it's not worth trying to fight them.
