Perfected in that context means recorded officially. Something can be more perfected by being officially recorded first before someone attempts to (or actually does) "perfect" (officially record) a contrary thing.
I am not your lawyer and you are not my client. Free advice here is without recourse and any reliance thereupon is at your sole risk. This is done without compensation as a free public service. I am licensed in IL, MO, TX and I am a Reg. Pat. Atty. so advice in any other jurisdiction is strictly general advice and should be confirmed with an attorney licensed in that jurisdiction.Ask a similar question
Also not an intellectual property question that needs to be re-categorized, with another confused asker including the kitchen sink of keywords for their question.
Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.Ask a similar question
Perfection in the contexxt of a secured transaction is the legal step necessary to make the security interest in the collateral enforcable. For most collateral other than real estate, perfection refers to filing a UCC-1 form with the Secretary of State for the state in which teh collateral is located. This is a public fililng showing that can be searched on line. That prevents the debtor from selling the collateral without first paying off her debt.Ask a similar question
