In 2007, the real estate brokerage Realtysellers shut down after alleging that the CREA and Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) had modified their rules to hinder flat-fee MLS services on behalf of those selling houses themselves. In 2010, the CREA settled with the Competition Bureau, and agreed to allow flat-fee listings. However, some real estate boards continued to bar the practice, citing interpretations of provincial laws requiring those trading in real estate to be licensed. Flat-free providers disputed the argument, claiming that their services were no different than posting listings on classifieds, and that they were not necessarily trading. In 2015, the Competition Bureau began a federal case against the TREB by Realitysellers

The Dark Years: In the late 1990s many of the smaller agencies were acquired by larger companies, breaking many of the MLS relationships that existed. More software options came in (all in competition) and, as the software houses did not work together, their collectives of agents became fragmented by non-collaborative out-of-group software restraints. With large property portals gaining ground in the 2000s agents in the UK started working alone as all could upload to the same portal platforms.

“We found Carol and Robert through their blog, and could not be more happy that we did. We felt an immediate connection, and knew that they were the team for us. Through countless conversations and visits to prospective homes, Carol and Robert always made us feel as if we were their top priority. They made the process of finding our new home fun and enjoyable, and really set the stage for the new life we would be creating in the mountains of North Carolina. I think what makes them such outstanding partners while looking for a new home is that they really listen. They could anticipate what we were looking for, and opened our eyes to properties we otherwise would not have looked at. The home we bought is an example of that.

The term “MLS” is considered generic in the United States and cannot be trademarked or branded. There is no single authoritative MLS and no universal data format. However, there is a data standard for MLS systems—the Real Estate Transaction Standard—which is being deployed across MLS solutions in North America. Local and private databases use XML-based data feeds to generate and update listings. Listings disseminated through MLS may be controlled by a single association of realtors or groupings of associations which represent all brokers within a given community or area.
When discount and flat fee compensation arrangements started growing in popularity  in the early 2000s some MLSes changed their membership rules or rule enforcement to make discount/flat fee MLS listings difficult or impossible. In response, the Federal Trade Commission investigated, found several violations of anti-trust laws, and entered into settlements with five MLSes to enable free competition for listings. One MLS, Realcomp in Michigan, refused to enter a settlement/consent agreement with the FTC, asserting it had the right to hide listings of discounters because such competition is detrimental to the revenue of its members. In 2006, the FTC filed a lawsuit against the Realcomp MLS alleging violations of federal anti-trust laws and squelching free competition.  The lawsuit went to trial in 2007 and the FTC lost, but won the case in a 4-0 unanimous ruling on appeal in 2009.
