It depends! To photocopy a stamp in black and white is not illegal in the US. It is illegal to make a copy of a stamp in the same size and color as the original. That is why most catalogs show the stamps at 3/4 or 2/3 size, so that they do not violate the laws of the country. Others require a bar or line across the stamp, a sort of pre-cancel, on the picture.
