Why Can't MLS Kick That Listing out of Our MLS?

From time to time our MLS is asked why brokerage business practices that are different are even permitted to enter their listing into our MLS.  For more than a century, federal antitrust laws have existed as a way to promote competition and prevent monopolies in business. Because MLS is akin to a Grand Central Station is the real estate market place, the MLS is under close scrutiny by the U.S. Department of Justice for practices that would prohibit competition.  And, because real estate brokers and salespeople frequently cooperate with one another in the sale of properties, brokers, agents, real estate associations and the MLS have numerous opportunities to engage in conduct that might be construed as violations of antitrust laws.
