(3) place the alcoholic beverages in containers or packaging material as a service to the producer of the beverages in connection with a market research program; and

(4) return the alcoholic beverages to the licensee, permittee, or authorized person from whom they were received.

(b) The holder of a market research packager's permit may not exercise any right of title to the alcoholic beverages received, other than possession. The permittee has no lien on the beverages to secure payment for amounts due from the owner of the beverages.
