Forgery is a most serious crime. Using a computer to forge mail, news postings, documents or currency is still forgery. You are still required to adhere to normal local, state, and federal laws regarding forgery. Forgery also violates UR policy as expressed in the document URHere. Forgery in an electronic environment is also a potential violation of the Electronic Communication and Privacy Act (ECPA), the Digital Telephony Act, and/or the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
