In the Matter of CoreLogic, Inc., a corporation, File No. 131 0199
I have had the opportunity of working as an employee for CoreLogic and can testify that they have a total disregard of the intellectual property of others. When an appraiser writes an appraisal for a client and submits it through AppraisalPort, which is owned by CoreLogic, the intellectual property is stripped from the appraisal and put into a database that CoreLogic can use to sell to others. Think Cambridge Analytica and Facebook and multiply that by 30,000 and 40,000 appraisers who use A La Mode software. Allowing them to purchase A La Mode appraisal software will also give them access to hundreds of thousands if not millions of appraisals stored on A La Mode's server's that we appraisers use as backup. There have been instances were A La Mode has locked up an appraiser's software over an alleged licensing disagreement. CoreLogic would not hesitate to lockup many more appraiser software if the appraiser did not cooperate.
