What is e-copy? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Internet applications glossary:

An e-copy is an electronic copy of a document. For example, when you send someone an e-mail note and specify that a copy of the note should be sent to someone else, the copy could be called an e-copy. The term does not seem to be very widely used, perhaps because, like e-mail, electronic copying is becoming so commonplace that identifying the copy as "electronic" seems unnecessary. Notice how often people today say "I'll send you a note" or "I'll send you some mail," because the electronic context is understood.
