English term or phrase: Ownership versus Title
What are the major differences in the usage of these two terms?

Does "ownership" mean the state of exclusive rights and control over property? Does "title" merely mean the elements or written documents (for example, a deed) that constitute legal ownership?


Thanks!

proprietary rights versus instrument per se
Explanation:
I think you said it. I believe ownership relates to propietary rights or proprietorship and title is the physical instrument per se whereby ownership can be conveyed or designated.-

agree  Gary D: Just a difference of when it is used. You can still own something with out having the title to it. A title can also be bestowed on you or to you.
