Over the seven years that I’ve been writing for Webopedia, many things have changed. Our site finally lost the “ancient” look last year (yay!) and we have a great design now. Webo’s on-site search engine has been greatly improved, and even our parent company has changed.
What hasn’t changed is the editorial focus and dedication to writing easy-to-understand tech definitions that anyone can reference to learn about the world of computers, technology and the Internet. That’s what Webopedia has always done (since 1996) and this is what we do best.

Mopy is an interesting term that you can use when describing fast multifunction printers (MFPs) that are used to create originals from files, rather than creating copies from the original.

mopy: A slang term that combines the words multiple original prints (plus the “y” from the word “copy”). The term is used to refer to the increasing use of fast, multifunction printers (MFPs) to create multiple original copies of documents, as opposed to using photo copiers. When using MFPs, the word mopy can replaces the common word copy, where the equipment would be referred to as a mopier (instead of copier).
