What Do Legal Copies Mean?

Many people have heard the term Legal Copies. They are a type of copy that has been made from an original document or sound recording and can be used as evidence in court.

What should I know about this?

These copies are also known as “duplicate” or “true” copies because they share identical content to their originals. Legal copies have many purposes, including making a backup copy, creating a record for copyright registration, and proving the publication date (copyright). A Copy is not the same as a photocopy – photocopies do not always contain all information on the original document because they often remove small details such as watermarks and other identifying marks.

On the other hand, these copies are exact duplicates of the original and thus can be used as evidence in court. The most common way to produce a legal copy is through an electronic scanning process that creates a digital image of the document. This image is then printed out using a laser printer, which results in high-quality text and images. These copies can also be created manually by tracing all or part of the original document with a pen or pencil. However, this method is often less accurate than electronic scanning and may not meet evidentiary standards in court.
