The act of cc'ing your boss and the boss of the person you're sending an email so that those in higher paygrades are made aware that either:

a) it is actually you who are doing all the work; or

b) you are not the person responsible for screwing up the project they've assigned to you.
a) Tammy is being a real co-worthless. I've spent the last week cranking out the quarterlies, and she's become the office placebo, making everyone think she's doing all of my work. I've started c.c.y.a.'ing our bosses with everything I complete so she can't take credit for any of it.

-or-

b) Jimbicile is completely fubar'd. He emailed the report to PMIP today with their name misspelled as PIMP throughout the entire document. I hit reply to tell him this, and I did a c.c.y.a. to make sure he didn't try to be a screwtard during the blame storm that's sure to come.
