|1.||copy and paste author|
(n). Someone, who sees something on the Internet, like a definition on urban dictionary, a Web site, a song lyric page, or any place where text can be copied and pasted to seem as if the paster wrote it himself.
Sometimes the copy and paster does it just to get electronically published.
What often results is that the Internet has not two, not three, but four, five, even more Web sites with the same information, and it is hard to distinguish who the genuine author is. It could be a kid, a law professor, the guy at Home Depot, etc.
When I looked up for information on my favorite rock band, I found three different sites with the same content. Two of the sites were made by a copy and paste author.
