(1) A security interest or agricultural lien is subordinate to the rights of:

(a) A person entitled to priority under ORS 79.0322; and

(b) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (5) of this section, a person that becomes a lien creditor before the earlier of the time:

(B) One of the conditions specified in ORS 79.0203 (2)(c) is met and a financing statement covering the collateral is filed.

(2) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (5) of this section, a buyer, other than a secured party, of tangible chattel paper, tangible documents, goods, instruments or a certificated security takes free of a security interest or agricultural lien if the buyer gives value and receives delivery of the collateral without knowledge of the security interest or agricultural lien and before it is perfected.

(3) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (5) of this section, a lessee of goods takes free of a security interest or agricultural lien if the lessee gives value and receives delivery of the collateral without knowledge of the security interest or agricultural lien and before it is perfected.

(4) A licensee of a general intangible or a buyer, other than a secured party, of collateral other than tangible chattel paper, tangible documents, goods, instruments or a certificated security takes free of a security interest if the licensee or buyer gives value without knowledge of the security interest and before it is perfected.

(5) Except as otherwise provided in ORS 79.0320 and 79.0321, if a person files a financing statement with respect to a purchase-money security interest before or within 20 days after the debtor receives delivery of the collateral, the security interest takes priority over the rights of a buyer, lessee or lien creditor which arise between the time the security interest attaches and the time of filing.
