DigitalMillenium Copy Right Act
 

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) provides a “Safe Harbor” to online service providers that shields them from copyright liability for the display of infringing content loaded by another brokerage.  An example would be the display on your IDX site of an infringing photo loaded by another office.

These days, lawsuits surrounding the use and ownership of listing photos is not an uncommon trend.

Unless you’re certain every listing photo displayed on your website (regardless of the listing ownership) has the proper rights for use, you could potentially be at risk for a similar lawsuit.

The DMCA protects customers affected by the use of an image with copyright issues, but it does not protect the person who originated the infringed photo.
