This paper seeks to differentiate rights from other things with which they are frequently confused. The focus is upon rights within private law, but this is used to emphasize the distinctiveness and importance of this area. The topics covered are in sequence: (i) Rights and Loss, (ii) Rights and Gains (which may be skipped by those more interested in theory), (iii) Rights and Interests, (iv) Rights and Deontology, (v) Rights and Corrective Justice, (vi) Rights and Private law.
