  Crimes of theft and mutilation against cultural heritage   resources are  being punished more severely under the 2002   revision of the federal  sentencing guidelines. However,   creating and distributing forgeries of  these resources are   not being recognized as crimes of a serious nature.  This   article describes several examples of how these forgeries   damage  cultural heritage, and calls for the inclusion of   forgery as a crime  against cultural heritage resources.
