Is the nyan cat song copyrighted?

It almost certainly is. Any piece of work is copyright by the person who created it; they can choose to put it in the public domain or license it under a permissive license; and if they don't act to protect their copyright it can become diluted to the point that it is no longer enforceable. So there is a chance that the Nyan Cat song's copyright has lapsed, but it is not safe to assume that.
