I bought a buddha statue and I would like to scan it using photogrammetry and publish the result.

Am I allowed to do that?

Is this the same like scanning a book and publishing it? Sketchfab on the other hand is full of 3d models of commercial products.

If the item that you are scanning is covered under copyright, then this is a more or less legal gray area. If it an image that is public domain, a publicly available Buddha statue for example, then you should have no more issue with scanning the item and publishing it.
