Voting is currently running against Copper. Is there any amount that people would support? Is there any rationale for putting a tiny amount in, just to have it on the label.

A suggestion has been made to keep the copper amount below 2mg. Is there any justification for putting a least a tiny amount in version 2.0. Maybe to make it a "full spectrum" multi.

In V1 we have half a milligram. If we are including zinc, the usual rule is to have cu and zn in a ratio of 1:10. V1 has 11mg zinc, which would call for 1.1mg cu by the ratio rule. That is more than the DRI, which is 0.9mg. I think it would be wrong to leave it out entirely; it's an essential mineral.

I agree, it's needed. I wouldn't like the high amounts found in store brands though.
