    New to InDesign, having issues placing objects vs just copy and paste.

      I am working on my first brochure layout in InDesign.  I'm having some issues while trying to place some simple vector artwork from Illustrator into my Indesign document.  When I do a file place, the image loses it's sharpness, but if I select the image in Illustrator then copy from AI and paste into InDesign it looks great.  I don't know enough to about this to know if this will have an adverse effect on the printing, or some other aspect of the finished product.  When using the copy/paste method I don't seem to be able to edit original as the artwork doesn't seem to be "linked" to a AI file but rather just artwork in the InDesign document if I am understanding correctly.  What am I doing something wrong?

      Thanks
