Why are our copper pipes turning green?

I have noticed on the copper pipes in our basement that at the elbows there is a green film and along the pipes there are green spots every so often. Someone told me that this may be the first sign of leakage.Should I be concerned ? Is there anything I should do if this is going to cause leaks in the future? The original owners moved in the house in 2002. We moved in during August 2004 does the builder still have an obligation to come and correct the problem or is it up to me to hire a plumber to have this corrected ?
