A U.S. Federal Trade Commission investigation has prompted a regional multiple listing service in New England to toss out a policy that blocked some property listings from reaching some public property-search sites, including Realtor.com.

The Northern New England Real Estate Network announced today that it has reached an agreement with the FTC that resolves the investigation.
