Forging Author Signatures is Bad

Forrest R. Smith III, a guy with a stately name but perhaps not the best conscience, carefully forged the signatures of famous authors in first edition books and sold them on eBay.

I can forge my brother's signature pretty well. I don't think he's going to become a famous author, though. Maybe he should work on that.
