CarFax is going after subscribers who are posting their accounts on forums for free-for-all use, and those who are selling access to their accounts by taking fees for performing searches.
We've been updated by a CarFax subscriber that the subscription is 'sharable between family and friends' - ie - not limited to the subscriber's own needs. However, no money/fees for service may change hands. This would cause the sharing to become a commecial transaction, and that is 99% of the issue.
If you want/need a Carfax, it is ok to post up and ask for one. In fact, we'll just have an "I need a CarFax" thread when the next one pops up. Those who have subscriptions are free to assist those in need as they see fit. They may not post their subscription information to the forums.
All information should be exchanged by PM, between friends.
