The keyboard shortcut ctrl+c has become notorious these days. Much has been said about the bopis incident, but since I was also a recipient of the crusading email, allow me to add my own two cent’s.

There are other keys on the keyboard, other than ctrl+c and ctrl+v. The other 99 or so keys are so that one can write, among other things:

“shamelessly lifted from insert-sourcename-here
“this isn’t my own work, I copied it from insert-copied source-here

But best of all, the other keys are there so that one can proclaim:

“This is my own work. 100% d’original. Beware of imitation.”
