When registering statues, carvings, ceramics, moldings, constructions, models, maquettes, dolls, toys, stuffed animals, puppets, or other three-dimensional sculptural works, the applicant generally must submit identifying material instead of submitting an actual copy of the work, regardless of whether the work is published or unpublished. 37 C.F.R. § 202.20 (C) (2)(xi) (A) (1). Likewise, the applicant generally must submit identifying material instead of submitting an actual copy of the work when registering jewelry or when registering any three-dimensional work that is embodied in a useful article. Id. § 202.20 (C) (2)(xi) (A) (2). For information concerning the requirements for identifying material, see Section 1509.3 (C).
