Abstract
Securitization of rights for paper-based securities is to integrate intangible rights with unique and tangible objects and the circulation of paper-based securities symbolizes the negotiability of rights. However, in electronic commerce, the essence of circulation of electronic securities is the control of the electronic transferable records, which is included in the legal relation of assignment of contractual rights. The purposes of this study is to analyze that transference of right of control of electronic transferable records has the same legal effect with the negotiability of traditional securities and further to make specific advice about legislation concerning electronic transferable securities in China. Trough making a comparison, logical analysis and value analysis, the paper draws following conclusions: it is two sides of the same coin to verify the legal controller of an electronic transferable record and to verify the uniqueness of the paper-based securities. Control of electronic transferable records and an assignment of right of control are functionally equivalent to possession, endorsement and delivery of paper-based securities. Therefore, the legality and validity of electronic securities shall be acknowledged by legislation in China.
