F.S. 677.106
677.106 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.
(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 a manner that:
(a) A single authoritative copy of the document exists which is unique, identifiable, and, except as otherwise provided in paragraphs (d), (e), and (f), unalterable;
(b) The authoritative copy identifies the person asserting control as:
1. The person to which the document was issued; or
2. If the authoritative copy indicates that the document has been transferred, the person to which the document was most recently transferred;
(c) The authoritative copy is communicated to and maintained by the person asserting control or its designated custodian;
(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;
(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
(f) Any amendment of the authoritative copy is readily identifiable as authorized or unauthorized.
