If a security certificate has been lost, apparently destroyed,
or wrongfully taken, and the owner fails to notify the issuer of

receiving notification, the owner may not assert against the issuer
a claim for registering the transfer under section 8-404 or a claim
to a new security certificate under section 8-405.
