Is this game copyrighted? Iv'e made a tutorial for Don't starve and the Monetization request got rejected..

Ive asked the maker of the song I used, if its copyrighted and he said its not, so am I not allowed to do videos in this game?

Of course the game is copyrighted, most games are.

You should read through the TOS for the game here - http://www.dontstarvegame.com/blog/terms-of-service/

Most importantly, this part - "

by saying copyrighted i didnt mean litteraly, I ment the part if I can make videos to this game, or take screenshots.

for example, minecraft and terraria lets players record videos and take screenshots without the need to pay\ ask for the rights. while battlefield 3 \ cod only machinima directors can upload videos from this game

You can make videos and let's plays and tutorials, but the problem here, I think, is that you are trying to make money out of it? Or at least that what understand when you say "Monetization" (although I don't know what you are actually referring to with that).

Money involved =/= fair use.
