      Such instruments, being drawn with certain requisites of form, were characterized by freedom of transferability that the non-negotiable promise or order or contract of any form did not have, and out of that central characteristic arose others, and the negotiable instrument thus became an instrument of credit and a means of payment that we can hardly imagine the commercial world doing without. The law as to documents of title bills of lading and warehouse receipts has borrowed this feature of negotiability from the law of Negotiable Instruments; but it must always be remembered that the two classes of instruments, negotiable instruments on the one hand, and documents of title on the other, must in certain respects ever be different and be governed as they are today, by entirely different bodies of law.

The holder of a negotiable document becomes by his acquisition and without notice to the carrier or warehouseman a party to the document as though he had originally contracted with the issuer. Units of such goods e.

      For each link of the chain, in which the final account holder is at the same time the final investor, its " security entitlement " is enriched by the "substantial" rights defined by the issuer: the right to receive dividends or interests and, possibly, the right to take part in the general meetings, when that was laid down in the account agreement concluded with the account provider. On the other hand, a contract permitting a party to come on land and mine, drill or cut timber does not call for one party to deliver goods to the other; crucial provisions of the Convention on conformity of goods Art.
