Frequently Asked Questions on the VOW Policy. NAR-VOW-FAQ.pdf
Q 9.1 What's the difference between a VOW and an IDX site?
An IDX site is considered advertising and listing brokers' consent is required before another broker may advertise his or her listing. A VOW (Virtural Office Website) is considered on-line brokerage. Listing brokers' consent is not required to display on a VOW any listing otherwise available to MLS participants and subscribers for Internet display. Sellers retain the ability to withhold their properties from Internet display or to withhold the display of their property's address from Internet display. A website that offers online MLS listing searching capability that does not comply with the detailed requirements of the VOW policy is, by definition, and IDX site.
Q 9.2 Does the settlement agreement affect the IDX policy? No.
