409.203 Annotation A provision in an instrument prohibiting transfer of the instrument did not render a security interest in the instrument unenforceable. Belke v. M & I First National Bank of Stevens Point, 189 Wis. 2d 385, 525 N.W.2d 737 (Ct. App. 1994).
409.203 Annotation If the terms of a security agreement establish that attachment is contingent on subsequent specification of the collateral, the secured party has no security interest before the satisfaction of the contingency. A security agreement requiring the designation of the accounts to serve as collateral gave no security interest when no designation was made. Sierra Finance Corp. v. Excel Laboratories, LLC, 223 Wis. 2d 694, 589 N.W.2d 432 (Ct. App. 1998), 97-2450.

409.203 Annotation Sub. (7) is identical to s. 9-203 (g) of the Uniform Commercial Code. The comment to s. 9-203 (g) states, "Subsection (g) codifies the common-law rule that a transfer of an obligation secured by a security interest or other lien on personal or real property also transfers the security interest or lien" and supports the assertion that sub. (7) was intended to codify the common law doctrine of equitable assignment. It also supports the argument that the doctrine applies to real estate mortgages. Dow Family, LLC v. PHH Mortgage Corporation, 2013 WI App 114, ___ Wis. 2d ___, ___ N.W.2d ___, 13-0221.

409.204(2)(a) (a) Consumer goods, other than an accession when given as additional security, unless the debtor acquires rights in them within 10 days after the secured party gives value; or
409.204(2)(b) (b) A commercial tort claim.
409.204(3) (3)Future advances and other value. A security agreement may provide that collateral secures, or that accounts, chattel paper, payment intangibles, or promissory notes are sold in connection with, future advances or other value, whether or not the advances or value are given pursuant to commitment.
409.204 History History: 2001 a. 10.
409.204 Annotation A security agreement covering money lent "and all other obligations and liabilities" will not extend to obligations arising out of contract violations unless they were clearly within the intent of the parties. John Miller Supply Co. v. Western State Bank, 55 Wis. 2d 385, 199 N.W.2d 161 (1972).

409.205 409.205 Use or disposition of collateral permissible.
409.205(1)(1) When security interest not invalid or fraudulent. A security interest is not invalid or fraudulent against creditors solely because:
409.205(1)(a) (a) The debtor has the right or ability to:
409.205(1)(a)1. 1. Use, commingle, or dispose of all or part of the collateral, including returned or repossessed goods;
409.205(1)(a)2. 2. Collect, compromise, enforce, or otherwise deal with collateral;
409.205(1)(a)3. 3. Accept the return of collateral or make repossessions; or
409.205(1)(a)4. 4. Use, commingle, or dispose of proceeds; or
409.205(1)(b) (b) The secured party fails to require the debtor to account for proceeds or replace collateral.
409.205(2) (2)Requirements of possession not relaxed. This section does not relax the requirements of possession if attachment, perfection, or enforcement of a security interest depends upon possession of the collateral by the secured party.
409.205 History History: 2001 a. 10.
409.205 Annotation Under s. 409.205 the debtor is freed from strict accountability to the secured creditor for the property secured, and the validity of a secured interest in after-acquired property is specifically recognized. When a creditor has a security interest in the debtor's after-acquired property the debtor is able to commingle his property and use it to his best interest. The acquiescence of the secured creditor under an after-acquired clause by the debtor does not invalidate the security interest of the creditor. Burlington National Bank v. Strauss, 50 Wis. 2d 270, 184 N.W.2d 122 (1971).
