2010 Florida Statutes

F.S. 677.106

Control of electronic document of title.


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.


A system satisfies subsection (1), and a person is deemed to have control of an electronic document of title, if the document is created, stored, and assigned in a manner that:


A single authoritative copy of the document exists which is unique, identifiable, and, except as otherwise provided in paragraphs (d), (e), and (f), unalterable;


The authoritative copy identifies the person asserting control as:


The person to which the document was issued; or


If the authoritative copy indicates that the document has been transferred, the person to which the document was most recently transferred;


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


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;


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


Any amendment of the authoritative copy is readily identifiable as authorized or unauthorized.


s. 22, ch. 2010-131.
