This paper presents the findings of the qualitative analysis of data, which pertains to the construction of the copyright network of YouTube, collected through virtual ethnographic methods and documentary analysis. In this paper, I analyse how Actor-Network Theory ('ANT') notion of translation and ANT/Foucauldian ideas about materiality can be used to shed light on the construction of the copyright network of YouTube as a socio-legal-technological network. I also trace the sources of resistance in the copyright network of YouTube which threatens the successful mobilisation of the network. The argument of this paper  is that the construction of the copyright network of YouTube is a precarious, contingent, and local process which depends on the stable and durable associations of various heterogeneous 'actants' such as users, commercial right holder, and technologies which assist in the protection of copyright interests such as Content ID.
