Copied pages should initially be in edit state
Copying a published document should not make the copied version publish, as you should be able to decide whether that copy should be published or not.
At the moment that document becomes published by default, there should be a way for this not to be done automatically.
It should go to a draft state, therefore unpublished if using workflow.

I vote in favor of this proposed change. There's a great deal of clean up required when copying a published page. A published page that is copied should initially be in the edit state so the web author can choose when to publish the page.

You have my vote. For users who aren't given Archive authority this causes much more work than necessary when copying repeating events to show at a future date. Editing a "Publish From" date with a future date on a published page does not hide that page, it only gets set to show page changes at that future date.

This is hugely problematic for us as we have multiple use cases where we copy a page but don't want it published immediately. You have to jump through hoops so no version is unpublished.
