SECTION 7-106
Control of Electronic Document of Title
Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) CHAPTER 38, ARTICLE 7, PART 1
Section 7--106. Control of Electronic Document of Title.

(a) A person has control of an electronic document of title if a
system employed for evidencing the transfer of interests in the
electronic document reliably establishes that person as the person to
which the electronic document was issued or transferred.

(b) A system satisfies subsection (a), and a person is deemed to have
control of an electronic document of title, if the document is created,
stored and assigned in such a manner that:

(1) a single authoritative copy of the document exists which is
unique, identifiable, and, except as otherwise provided in paragraphs
(4), (5), and (6), unalterable;

(2) the authoritative copy identifies the person asserting control as:

(A) the person to which the document was issued; or

(B) if the authoritative copy indicates that the document has been
transferred, the person to which the document was most recently
transferred;

(3) the authoritative copy is communicated to and maintained by the
person asserting control or its designated custodian;

(4) copies or amendments that add or change an identified assignee of
the authoritative copy can be made only with the consent of the person
asserting control;

(5) each copy of the authoritative copy and any copy of a copy is
readily identifiable as a copy that is not the authoritative copy; and

(6) any amendment of the authoritative copy is readily identifiable as
authorized or unauthorized.
