I don't see any difference:

    [[[
    % svn up
    At revision 1.

    % svnversion
    1

    % svn cp -q iota iota2

    % svn ci -q -m "r2: add iota2"

    % svn cp -q ^/trunk/iota ^/trunk/iota3 -m "r3: add iota3"

    % svn up -q

    % svn info iota2 iota3 | grep "Last Changed Rev"
    Last Changed Rev: 2
    Last Changed Rev: 3

    %
    ]]]

In both cases, the "Last Changed Rev" is the revision of the copy.

Hmmm.
