Copy abilities

According to the REG:
Quote from: REG->Copy
A copy effect that copies a special ability adds the special ability of the target to the copying card [emphasis added].
The copied special ability activates as the last part of completing the copy effect.
With that being the case I have the following questions:
  • Copying the special ability of a card copies both the ability and any modifiers, right?
  • If the answer to question 1. is indeed yes, if a copy ability that copied a CBI or CBN ability is later negated, the copied ability would remain, right?
  • Finally, with Necromancer, does the ability that he copies effectively become CBP?

1. The special ability of a card includes any abilities and modifiers printed on (or gained by) that card, so copying the special ability would copy the modifiers.

2. Yes.

3. Yes, since the copied ability is added instead of replacing.

Oh wow.  Necromancer can be a REALLY powerful card if used properly!
