Personal Nonproperty Rights

Personal Nonproperty Rights

 

the rights of citizens and organizations that are not related to property; a type of subjective rights.

In Soviet law there are several groups of personal nonproperty rights included in the basic rights of citizens. Among the rights of individuals are the right to work and the right to rest and leisure. Family rights include, for example, the right of parents to bring up their children. Rights that follow from citizen membership in cooperative and public organizations include, for example, the right of a kolkhoz member to be elected to its executive bodies. The right to one’s own name and the right to personal honor, authorship, and the like constitute an important group of personal nonproperty rights. A characteristic feature of all personal nonproperty rights is that they are inalienable, inseparable from the citizens who hold them. Personal nonproperty rights are generally included in the category of absolute rights. Their scope and content are regulated by various branches of the law: family, civil, copyright, and the like. Punishment for socially dangerous (criminal) violations of personal nonproperty rights is provided for in the norms of criminal law (for example, the criminal law protects the honor and dignity of citizens from slander and libel).
