AS 45.07.402. Duplicate Receipt or Bill; Overissue.

Neither a duplicate nor any other document of title purporting to cover goods already represented by an outstanding document of the same issuer confers a right in the goods, except as provided in the case of bills in a set, overissue of documents for fungible goods, and substitutes for lost, stolen, or destroyed documents. But the issuer is liable for damages caused by the issuer's overissue or failure to identify a duplicate document as such by conspicuous notation on its face.
