How do I place a watermark shadow saying "Copy" across a document.

Possibly the real problem is that I don't know the correct terminology for
this thing that prints a shadow message in the background, like a watermark
that can be seen, but doesn't hide the typed information on the page. It
doesn't have to be "Copy", it could say "Duplicate" or "Secret" or whatever
you want.

"Watermark" is the correct term. Try typing it into the Help search box...

In Word 2003 and earlier, click Format > Background > Printed Watermark. In Word
2007, click the Page Layout tab of the ribbon and click the Watermark button in
the Page Background group, then click the Custom Watermark item at the bottom of
the gallery.

In either case, you get a dialog where you can choose the watermark you want. In
the Text dropdown, you can choose one of the existing entries or type in
whatever text you want.
