§ 7104. Negotiable and nonnegotiable document of title.
(a) Negotiable.--Except as otherwise provided in subsection (c), document of title is negotiable if, by its terms, the goods are to be delivered to the bearer or to the order of a named person.
(b) Nonnegotiable.--A document of title other than one described in subsection (a) is nonnegotiable. A bill of lading that states that the goods are consigned to a named person is not made negotiable by a provision that the goods are to be delivered only against an order in a record signed by the same or another named person.
(c) Legend determinative.--A document of title is nonnegotiable if, at the time it is issued, the document has a conspicuous legend, however expressed, that it is nonnegotiable.Section: Previous 7101 7102 7103 7104 7105 7106 Next
