Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of CoStar Group, Inc., Lonestar Acquisition Sub, Inc., and LoopNet, Inc., FTC File No. 1110172

I am glad to see the Federal Trade Commission has required CoStar to sell LoopNet's ownership interest in Xceligent. This is important for competition to flourish and with the new Xceligent investor it appears the FTC has created a level playing field. As a consumer, I like to have the opportunity to work with a vendor of my choice and believe this will require both vendors to remain competitive in the field.
