(2) which is created by statute or rule of law in favor of the person; and

(3) whose effectiveness depends on the person's possession of the goods.

(b) Priority of possessory lien.--A possessory lien on goods has priority over a security interest in the goods unless the lien is created by a statute which expressly provides otherwise.
