Note that if the chart is pasted into a new position but in the same spreadsheet, it will still be a live chart that will update in real time as the underlying data changes; otherwise (e.g. if it’s pasted into a different sheet, a document, or a presentation) it’s just an image – a snapshot of the chart at the time it was cut and pasted.
