Wanted to know if I give a user Modify Permissions on Folder1, whether they will be able to copy folder1 to another location.

You will need to create custom permission for this user that will allow him to view, read, edit, delete content not top folder
how to do that ?

it sounds like Read/Write

If I give Read/write to Folder1 for User1, then:

User1 can create folders and files under Folder1
User1 cannot delete or alter any folder or file created by other users under Folder1
Other users cannot delete or alter any folder or file created by  user1

Users can delete or alter only folders and files that they have created by themselves.

Correct ?

If they have Read access, then the file can be copied.. Unfortunately, NTFS doesn't have a permission like Novell did (filescan) that lets you see the existence of a file, but not read it.  If you can read it, you can copy it.

The other key piece of this when you copy a file is what the permissions are on the destination location.. If they have the ability to write at the destination, the copy will complete.  All of the other permissions can create various scenarios of how to get to the scenario.  

Rights Management is integrated into the documents themselves, not the filesystem..

So.. in your situation, if you want to let them write files, you can either remove the Read permission, or you can add the Read permission and set it to Deny.  That would give them a write-only location and they would not be able to copy *from* the directory.

I did not have a question about Copying..  

was trying to understand if my statement below is correct:

If I give Read/write to Folder1 for User1, then:

User1 can create folders and files under Folder1
User1 cannot delete or alter any folder or file created by other users under Folder1
Other users cannot delete or alter any folder or file created by  user1

Users can delete or alter only folders and files that they have created by themselves.

Correct ?

The Copy question was Initial question, but suggested Read/Write might be safer
