Modern property theory focuses not on the things themselves but on the kind of rights required to the use of things. It defines property as a bundle of rights pretaining to the use of things. Thre basic rights include:

User rights - the right to detrmine how a thing will be used.

Income rights - the right to determine and appropriate the income arising from the use of the thing.

Disposal rights - the right to dispose of the thing or to tranfer ownership to another.
