I found the following phrase: "Warning: It is illegal to duplicate this copy by photostat or photograph." Evidently a photostat is a duplicating machine that makes quick positive or negative copies directly on the surface of prepared paper. Any suggestions for a translation?

    E' illegale duplicare questa copia tramite fotocopia o fotografia....
    Ma suona molto male :(
    Io direi:
    E' vietata qualsiasi tipo di duplicazione.
    Riproduzioni fotografiche o fotostatiche sono (considerate) illegali.
    And many other variants, of course....

    "Warning: It is illegal to duplicate this copy by photostat or photograph."
    The easiest translation is:
    "Avvertenza: è illegale fotocopiare o fotografare la presente copia"

    However, if it's a document you'd better say:
    "Avvertenza: è illegale fotocopiare o fotografare il presente documento"
    :)
