No, I did not imply or state that at all.  In fact, I was answering your 
own statement in which you posted the following valid argument:

Notice your beautiful keyword there -- "skills."  Yes, I agree with your 
statement 100%.  Not a problem at all.  However, anytime that one 
directly copies code from someone else, (at least within the United 
States), you run the risk of copyright violation and getting sued.

That's not an issue here, but in real life, one needs to be aware of 
this.  Not all people are as nice and wonderful as you will find in a 
teaching forum, such as this.

As a college-level teacher, it is important that an education be more 
than knowing how to write code -- it has to do with learning successful 
business practices too.  :-)  (Ones that will keep you out of the court 
room, at least!)
