I thought you should not alter someone else's object?

In one place Craig is telling us we shouldn't alter the original list, but then, in his function he is only using the copy to iterate over and hasn't assigned it so that it will be preserved. The function consequently goes on to leave the original list/object empty. Why? Why wouldn't you simply just iterate over the list and print it?

Can you provide a link to the video, and perhaps a time index or two?
