Holder/owner of right./ The right is with me. Is there a noun/or a compound noun in english? Even an idiom or smth?


  • We fight, because right is with us/holders/owners of right, and because of that we shall fight and we shall be victors.

  • I will not concede or cede my right, how do you want me to, and I am an owner of right.

  • Holders of right, no matter how long time stretches, will get their right.

  • The person that owns the rights on something is the "rights holder" (or the rights owner). Unless you refer to a specific right, the plural is normally used.

    'Owner of right' is actually a legal tterm , meaning something different. Jan 7, 2016 at 23:48
  • I think the idiom you're looking for is "We have truth on our side."

When we justify military action or violence by appeals to a moral good, we say

We have right on our side.


A righteous person (someone acting or disposed to act rightly or justly; conforming to the precepts of divine law or accepted standards of morality; upright, virtuous. OED)
