Actually, yes it is. This is why reputable
companies don't ask for them anymore.
See Title 18, U.S. Code Part I, Chapter 33, Section 701
"Whoever manufactures, sells, or possesses any badge, identification card, or other insignia, of the design prescribed by the head of any department or agency of the United States for use by any officer or employee thereof, or any colorable imitation thereof, or photographs, prints, or in any other manner makes or executes any engraving, photograph, print, or impression in the likeness of any such badge, identification card, or other insignia, or any colorable imitation thereof, except as authorized under regulations made pursuant to law, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both."
I was in the Marine Corps and have also been informed by the Air Force. That's 3 branches saying it's illegal, and a Federal law stating the same thing...
So YES, it IS illegal. Don't do it.Edited by polizei - 10/3/12 at 5:37pm
