I can’t emphasize the notion of understanding what you are copying enough. A colleague’s research group just had a paper accepted for publication that shows that a significant percentage of non-trivial code samples on coding sites including StackOverflow have security issues. We all do it, but we just have to be aware of what we are copying.
