The Award of Merit statuette may not be used in generic fashion as a logo or decorative motif for any purpose in any video or television production, motion picture, or print or digital publication not produced by, or explicitly authorized by, the Academy.
Award winners shall not sell or otherwise dispose of the Oscar statuette, nor permit it to be sold or disposed of by operation of law, without first offering to sell it to the Academy for the sum of $1. This provision shall apply also to the heirs and assigns of Academy Award winners who may acquire a statuette by gift or bequest.
Neither the marks “Academy Award®” nor “Oscar®” may be used to describe awards given by organizations other than the Academy. (An award may be described as “the Uruguayan equivalent of the Oscar Award,” but not as “the Uruguayan Oscar.”)
The Award of Merit statuette may not be used as a stage property or article of set dressing in any stage, television, video or motion picture production not produced by the Academy. Licensed exceptions will be considered under unusual circumstances. Violations of this paragraph may subject theatrical films to the loss of Academy Awards eligibility.
No personal appearance, picture or drawing of an Academy Award recipient with an Academy Award symbol or Academy mark may be used in advertising or promotional materials of any sort without the written consent of the Academy, except as permitted by these Regulations.
Video cassettes and discs of motion pictures that have received the Award for Best Picture may include a depiction of the Oscar statuette on their packaging under the following conditions:
a) It appears no more than once on each package,
b) the size of the depiction does not exceed one inch in height,
c) the Academy approves the quality of the representation of its symbol to be used,
