  1. Copying

    Copying is the duplication of information or an artifact based only on an instance of that information or artifact, and not using the process that originally generated it. With analog forms of information, copying is only possible to a limited degree of accuracy, which depends on the quality of the equipment used and the skill of the operator. There is some inevitable deterioration and accumulation of "noise" from original to copy; when successive generations of copy are made, this deterioration accumulates with each generation. With digital forms of information, copying is perfect. Copy and paste is frequently used for information a computer user selects and copies to an area he or she wishes. Most high-accuracy copying techniques use the principle that there will be only one type of possible interpretation for each reading of data, and only one possible way to write an interpretation of data.

Examples of copying in a Sentence

  4. Emeasoba George:

    No human is a role model in actual sense or rather logically. These are my reasons. A model is a perfect or ­peculiar representative of a system, an organ or a product. Whereas, a role model itself, is a distinctive model from models. Now, that signifies, a role model should be perfect and peculiar from the crowd or its counterparts. But unfortunately, the reverse is always the case with the so called role models right here or out there. Besides that, every so called role model right here or out there looks up to someone else as his or her own role model too. And that shouldn't be so. Anyway, all I'm saying in essence is this, the so called role models don't deserve to be called role models. Moreover, that infers you've got to be and remain your own model. I mean, always be your own self and stop copying or imitating someone else no matter what happens. Lest you forget, every human is a unique creation i.e. you are God's masterpiece scripture reference (Psalms 139 : 14). Nevertheless, I guess that's a reasonable reason why you should always long to be and remain your own self and not at all any other person or celebrity right here or out there.

  5. Mohammad Javad Akbarein:

    The maddah are copying from rap, rock and dance music.
