> This from Inman: Realtors question Web site name restrictions, about concerns some are raising about a new Code of Ethics standard of practice that says REALTORS shall not “use URLs or domain names that present less than a true picture.” The new SOP, approved last November, is the result of the use, by some members, of domain names that suggest that the REALTOR is actually the MLS (for instance, a broker whose website is “VirginiaMLS.com”). Seems to me such usages are misleading at best…and therefore the new NAR SOP is appropriate. Or in other words, just because it’s legal and you own it doesn’t mean it’s ethical. What do you think?
