What is a Photocopier?


A photocopier (also known as a copier or copy machine) is a machine that makes paper copies of documents and other visual images quickly and cheaply. Wikipedia, October 10, 2014

It’s obvious. We all know what a photocopier is. We may not understand the technology behind photocopiers but we know what one is. Yet, the definition of a photocopier led to a heated exchange in a deposition in Ohio, which is hilariously reproduced in the YouTube video Verbatim: What is a photocopier?  For more on this story see  the New York Times or the original transcript.
