What is copywriting? Is it copying other people's writing? Is it a form of advertisement?

I'm a little confused.

Copywriting is the heart and soul of advertising.

It’s putting words to emotions and instilling powerful emotions with mere words. The difference between good copy and great copy is often subtle. Several other commenters have brought certain slogans and tagline to your attention, which are certainly excellent examples of good copy. But a copy is so much more than a tagline.

Ouch, almost all the important links seem to be broken and some images gone.
That's discouraging.

There's a complicated etymology behind the word but hers' what you need to know:
  • Writing is the art of communicating ideas through text.
  • Copywriting is the art of driving action through text.
The writing on sales letters, calls to action, advertisements, product descriptions, and pamphlets is called "copy".

The advice I give as the best way to learn copywriting is to
  • Read Ca$hvertising
  • Read The Adweek Copywriting Handbook.
  • Sell some stuff
  • Repeat
