Summary/Abstract: The Law on obligatory relations of the Republic of Croatia from 2005 refines a Croatian legislation with a new (but not unknown to us) concept of protection of subjective rights. It is about the rights of personality, as a "legal part" that in the right place put the non property rights protection. As one of the characteristics of personality, in this place can be stated facts, that it is not so much the result of legislative (normative) activities, as are the part of development, ethical, moral, philosophical, legal practices and other activities dealing with man and law – human rights, as a highest values today. Just because the times of their development, it often was denied (not to say abused), but the persistence of those who saw in them the progress of mankind still taught.
