Copper brake Lines

It's intteresting to read everyones ideas.
Goes to show how ideas change thruout the world.
Here in Canada it is illegal to use copper lines (They will not pass a safety inspection that way) I like the idea of copper not rusting Because any rust and or flaking on our lines will also result in failing a safety inspection.
I wounder if Denmark uses a different type of copper line especially for brake line application? Is it of a harder compound/wall thickness?
When I went to trade school they told us that the copper lines would swell and eventually fail. ( If I'm not mistaken army Jeeps Vehicles used copper right into the late 1970's.) I remember installing some raider units on 6 wheel drive trucks and couldn't believe they had copper lines. Assumed it was a special army issue.
