Introduction: in the modern world, and, as a result, the legislation, society inevitably faces new phenomena that cannot always be successfully implemented in the existing database of the rules of substantive law. The paper deals with the concept of “information” in the retrospect of the civil legislation. The purpose of the paper is to study the concept of “information”, as well as the objects of civil rights associated with this concept. The author focuses on “digital rights” as a new object of civil rights. Methods: the methodological framework is a set of methods of scientific knowledge, such as the method of scientific analysis and the comparative law method. The final part of the paper presents the arguments of modern civilists about the object of civil rights and its circulability. The results of the study are a well-founded point of view about the need to recognize information as a generic concept in relation to certain declared objects of civil rights. Conclusions: the scientific discussion regarding the removing of information from the list of objects of civil rights has objective reasons; the entering of information in the list of civil rights objects would eliminate some theoretical and practical contradictions.

Key words: information, digital rights, objects of civil rights, circulability, cryptocurrency.
