For realtors around Central Florida, logging into the Stellar MLS will bring a new end user license agreement, or EULA, that you are required to agree to before you can use the service again. While most of the EULA is the same as previous versions, there are several key differences.
Paragraph 6 has been changed. You now agree to “comply with all Stellar MLS Policies at all times” without saying what those policies are. It also requires you to agree to comply with all state and federal laws, ordinances, and regulations. There is a special call-out here to the Fair Housing Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Paragraph 16 has been changed. Under the old EULA, it only required you to confirm that any information submitted complied with Stellar MLS policies. Now you are confirming that it complies with all applicable laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations, as well as Stellar MLS policies.
Finally, Paragraph 49 has been changed. It adds a clause that states that the agreement cannot be interpreted against Stellar MLS because they drafted it. This is a common clause in many contracts, and is most likely being put in because of the potential ambiguities in the other changes or in other parts of the EULA.
