Even if all forms are correct, I prefer the uppercase. Due Recht is mostly used as a noun. Mit deiner Handlung bist du im Recht. Literally means, that your behavior fits to the law. Law is an object and therefore written uppercase in habit. But there are also usages of Recht in which it is not used as an subject or object and lowercase is more ...


The only correct pre-reform spelling was lowercase. This is still considered correct (recommended, even), although you may also capitalize "Recht" now. Duden has more: http://www.duden.de/rechtschreibung/recht


All four versions are correct. However the lower case ones are recommended by the Duden so you'd probably rather go with them. Sources: http://www.duden.de/rechtschreibung/recht_haben http://www.duden.de/rechtschreibung/Unrecht
