So while everyone is still fired up over the IDX feed/Fair Housing lawsuit........ Apparently you can get popped for having copyrighted photos on your IDX listings too. From a fellow New Hampshire Realtor: "I just got billed $1,065 because some agent from Southern NH included a copyrighted picture of a Mountain Climber in their NNEREN Listing. The IDX Feed put it on my website and I get billed. At first I thought it was a scam. Glad, I called because it was legitimate. Getty Images is real and will sue you. After a couple minutes on the phone with their attorney I was able to explain that I didn't put the picture up and they took me off the hook. But the listing agent is still going to have to pay."
Here's something to spend your money on. The folks in New York and New Jersey are hurting from lack of aid and supplies. In Portsmouth and the NH Seacoast we're gathering up supplies; bottled water, trash bags, blankets, warm clothing, batteries and other stuff for them. Several local police officers are driving down Tuesday to deliver them. If you're on the east coast within driving distance you might consider starting a similar effort from your area. From some of the reports coming out of that area it appears to be New Orleans all over again. FEMA ran out of bottled water and just put out a request to vendors for 2.6 Million gallons or so but at the speed they move our grandchildren might be the ones drinking it. Let's step up and do something NOW if we can.

I know Peter ; Lizard Lick is a major hoot. They had some great misadventures last night. ;) That was pretty funny when the construction guys dumped that load of dirt against their front door. Gotta be careful who you repo from. ;>
Unfortunately only so much comes from reporting someone. If you really want to help teach them the ethical path you need to file an ethics complaint against them and put them before your professional standards board. It will take some of your time to do but it makes them think twice about trying it again.
