I wrote this White Paper in August of 2008 right after I took the CEO position at Point2 (Jan 2008) and we began to talk about data distribution.

At the time, the MLS Data Contracts had very little in the way of restrictions around the MLS Data. Concepts such as “Derivative Rights” were in their infancy.
