Loss of rights due to felony conviction takes many forms. In the United States this includes disenfranchisement, loss of the right to vote, can be on a jury (which most people don't want anyway), and loss of the right to possess firearms.

In the USA, every state except Maine and Vermont prohibits felons from voting while in prison. Nine other states disenfranchise felons for various lengths of time following the completion of their probation or parole. Two states, Kentucky and Virginia, continue to impose a lifelong denial of the right to vote to all citizens with a felony record, in the absence of a restoration of civil rights by the Governor or, where allowed, state legislature.

Those are the most glaring but the felony conviction would have to be revealed on applications (employment or apartment applications), potential loan applications and college applications too.
