I have copied a content element that is set to "All Languages":

I'm now inserting the copied record after another one on another page:

The copy is now in German:

When inserting the copy after a record that is also set to "All Languages", the behavior is different:

Now my copy is also set to "All Languages":

Maybe I'm drawing the wrong conclusions from this one, but the behavior is unexpected to say the least.

Hmm this is kind of intended since the core explicitly configured tt_content to behave like this in TCA:

$GLOBALS['TCA']['tt_content']['ctrl']['copyAfterDuplFields'] = 'colPos,sys_language_uid';

This configuration is resolved in DataHandler::fixCopyAfterDuplFields() which is called upon the copy-process and the header of the methods states: When er record is copied you can specify fields from the previous record which should be copied into the new one

So it seems the behavior is indeed intended.
