Response to: Access rights on some files
I'll address the first part of this post. The duplicating of a folder does result in world-writable permissions, bt my question is- where are you duplicating folders? I would suspect that most user's may duplicate a folder somewhere within their home directory, say the Desktop or Documents folder (where the user's files and folders should be kept for security reasons anyway). The duplicated file or folder may have world-writable permissions, but the enclosing folders do not. So the files would be protected.
