Personal rights include health, freedom, the right to worship, freedom of conscience, a good name or pseudonym, protection of scientific or artistic work, confidentiality of correspondence and immunity of residence. Violation of property or values protected by civil law gives rise to compensatory liability, among other things. Currently, the most frequent violations involve creative work, freedom of speech, defamation, with individuals’ character often impugned by the media or in connection with public appearances. Importantly, both private individuals and public figures may seek protection of their personal rights.
