Definitions for "Copying"
This generally refers to an infringer copying from a patented product, apparatus, composition, or process and may enhance evidence of infringement.
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, if applicable, the skill of the operator. With digital forms of information, perfect copying is not only possible, but is, almost by definition, the norm.
The production of an identical copy within the same type of medium (paper, microfilm or electronic), eg from paper to paper, microfilm to microfilm or the production of backup copies of electronic records (which can also be made on a different kind of electronic medium).
