The article discusses a new object of civil rights, which appeared as a result of the addition of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation with article 141.1 “Digital rights”. The features of the definition of digital rights in Russian civil law are revealed. Particular attention is paid to the formulation of the concept of digital rights contained in the Civil Code of the Russian Federation. The author draws attention to the fact that according to Russian civil law, digital rights include only those that are directly named as such in the law, which indicates a legislative limitation of their turnover.
