Maine Revised Statutes

§7-1106. Control of electronic document of title

(1).   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.
[ 2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §4 (AFF) .]
(2).   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 such a manner that:
(a). A single authoritative copy of the document exists that is unique, identifiable and, except as otherwise provided in paragraphs (d), (e) and (f), unalterable; [2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §4 (AFF).]
(b). The authoritative copy identifies the person asserting control as:
(i) The person to which the document was issued; or
(ii) If the authoritative copy indicates that the document has been transferred, the person to which the document was most recently transferred; [2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §4 (AFF).]
(c). The authoritative copy is communicated to and maintained by the person asserting control or its designated custodian; [2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §4 (AFF).]
(d). 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; [2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §4 (AFF).]
(e). 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 [2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §4 (AFF).]
(f). Any amendment of the authoritative copy is readily identifiable as authorized or unauthorized. [2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §4 (AFF).]
[ 2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 2009, c. 324, Pt. A, §4 (AFF) .]
