In law, “constructive possession” is an idea used in law to protect property or asset. It determines the possession of an asset or property that is not in physical possession. Though not in physical control, something can still be legally considered to be possessed by an individual. The concept is useful in the modern era when a person possesses many belongings even without physical control. For example, if an owner of a car has the key to the car and the legal documents, there is constructive possession. Hence, even if someone steals the car, he or she cannot legally possess it. Another incidence is identity theft in the information era. The thief of the identifying information charged for having constructive possession. The owner of the information remains the legal owner. Constructive possession is the same as physical possession when there is legal ownership.
