That's right, because the Copeland set is a subset of the Smith set 
(actually, even a subset of the uncovered set), so choosing a candidate 
from that set must be Smith-efficient.

However, every Copeland method of this form fails clone independence 
because the Copeland set as a whole fails it. (It might also be the 
case, though implausible, that there are multiple candidates with the 
same number of first preferences, or even with zero).
