Explanation: 2.1.7 Active and Passive Rights The distinction between active and passive rights (Lyons 1970) maps neatly onto the Hohfeldian incidents. The privilege and the power are "active" rights that their holders exercise. The claim and the immunity are "passive" rights that their holders merely enjoy. Active rights are signaled by statements of the form "A has a right to φ"; while passive rights are signaled by statements of the form "A has a right that B φ" (in both of these formulas, "φ" is an active verb).
