Children's participation in the internet revolution is regularly touted as a mixture of societal progress and an invitation to predatory adults and digital criminals. The idea that children can be active participants in a negative sense through illegal or deviant behaviour has received little attention from policy makers, awareness raisers, and researchers, although issues such as ‘digital bullying’, ‘happy slapping’, and the illegal downloading of music and movies are starting to creep into the public – and official – consciousness. This chapter focuses on children as online delinquents, actively producing online risks such as illegal or undesired online content or conduct.
