Four conflicting legal paradigms of childhood are visible among the four bodies of law that control digital spaces — those of contract, copyright, free speech, and data privacy/information security — and the tension among these paradigms is becoming increasingly unsustainable. As online business models become progressively more data intensive, the “breathing room” that childhood has been afforded traditionally is eroding. This article proposes a legal paradigm of childhood that simultaneously focuses on childhood privacy and creating a space for creative tinkering leading to entrepreneurship in adulthood.
