One of the YouTube users that were affected decided to contact the developer behind “The Last of Us” and the “Uncharted” title coming to the PS4 directly through Twitter. He asked if the studio disallowed videos based on their software products from being monetized. A representative from Naughty Dog responded by saying that his company “don’t like” others making money off of showing videos from their games. However, the studio has not yet come up with an official policy.

In general terms we don't like monetization w/ our content, but haven't created official policy yet.

YouTube recently sent out a huge amount of copyright notices to select channels specializing on video games. As a result, the website users can no longer earn ad revenues on videos that were affected.

Naughty Dog is currently busy working on the “Left Behind” single-player DLC for “The Last of Us.” The studio also recently announced that the next video game from the “Uncharted” series will be coming to the PS4.
