Trademarks and Emmy® Statuette

AWARD OWNERSHIP: Emmy® Awards are presented to individuals, not to their employers.  Ownership of the Emmy®statuette is retained by the individuals and The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, even if an employer pays entry fees.  Stations, studios and production companies may order a commemorative statuette for public display at their place of business (up to a maximum of three per winning entry). The statuette is engraved the same as the actual Emmy® Award, with the word “commemorative” added on the rear of the statuette.

PROMOTION: All publicity, advertising or any written reference undertaken by nominees and award recipients to the Emmy® Awards, must clearly state that the awarded achievement is for a Boston/New England Regional Emmy® Award. The Recipient of a nomination or an Emmy® Award may refer in advertising and publicity to the fact that they have been honored for one year after the recognition was bestowed. They may use a replica of the Emmy® statuette in such advertising. The statuette itself may not be reproduced or used in any other commercial manner without written permission from NATAS. A ® registration mark and the appropriate copyright notice: © NATAS/ATAS must accompany any portrayal of the Emmy® statuette or moniker.
