[erlang-questions] spawn and controlling_process

Hi all, my first question here.

How safe it is to use controlling_process after spawn? I am using
additional gen_tcp:controlling_process inside the Mod:Fun itself after few
additional commands. Is it possible that process will not be owner by then?

Pid = erlang:spawn(Mod, Fun, Args),


Is one-liner safer?

gen_tcp:controlling_process(Socket,erlang:spawn(Mod, Fun, Args)),
