    The "do not copy" stuff is to discourage people from making copies for unlawful purposes. If you're concerned about having to have copies to show people you should get true copies:
    How Do I Obtain Certified True Copies of a Certificate of Naturalization?

    Any time you have a name change, either by court order or marriage or whatever, it behooves you to get a bunch of true copies. I got a half dozen of our marriage certificate 23 years ago and I had to dig one out of my files for my wife just last year so she could apply for one of her pensions.

    Sure, go ahead. Most places don't care. The worst that can happen is they don't accept it and you try something else.

    Nobody's coming after you for using a copy to correct your utility account.

    Can they? Sure.

    Will they? You have a better chance of getting hit by a meteor than the chance that the utility company will complain to another government agency. :D

    There's nothing for anybody to complain about. There is no prohibition against making copies of your naturalization certificate for lawful purposes.

    For example:
    It is lawful for you to make a copy to show the utility company that you are who you say you are, or to correct a spelling error in your name.
    It is unlawful to make a copy to give to your cousin so that he can apply for utility services at his new apartment.
