UCC 9-317. Interests that take priority over or take free of security interest or agricultural lien

(1) A security interest or agricultural lien is subordinate to the rights of:

(a) A person entitled to priority under ORS 79.0322 (UCC 9-322. Priorities among conflicting security interests in and agricultural liens on same collateral); and

(b) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (5) of this section, a person that becomes a lien creditor before the earlier of the time:

(A) The security interest or agricultural lien is perfected; or

(B) One of the conditions specified in ORS 79.0203 (UCC 9-203. Attachment and enforceability of security interest) (2)(c) is met and a financing statement covering the collateral is filed.

(2) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (5) of this section, a buyer, other than a secured party, of tangible chattel paper, documents, goods, instruments or a security certificate takes free of a security interest or agricultural lien if the buyer gives value and receives delivery of the collateral without knowledge of the security interest or agricultural lien and before it is perfected.

(3) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (5) of this section, a lessee of goods takes free of a security interest or agricultural lien if the lessee gives value and receives delivery of the collateral without knowledge of the security interest or agricultural lien and before it is perfected.

(4) A licensee of a general intangible or a buyer, other than a secured party, of accounts, electronic chattel paper, general intangibles or investment property other than a certificated security takes free of a security interest if the licensee or buyer gives value without knowledge of the security interest and before it is perfected.

(5) Except as otherwise provided in ORS 79.0320 (UCC 9-320. Buyer of goods) and 79.0321 (UCC 9-321. Licensee of general intangible and lessee of goods in ordinary course of business), if a person files a financing statement with respect to a purchase-money security interest before or within 20 days after the debtor receives delivery of the collateral, the security interest takes priority over the rights of a buyer, lessee or lien creditor which arise between the time the security interest attaches and the time of filing.
