Copper vs Fiber Uplinks on 2960

What are the advantages/disadvantages of using the gig copper uplinks instead of the sfp uplinks on the 2960, or on any switch for that matter, aside from security and distance limitations? A 48 port SFP blade on the 6500 costs a lot more than a 48 port copper 10/100/1000 blade, not to mention the gbics and fiber jumpers.

It's pretty much as you describe , security, distance limitations also copper is more prone to electromagnetic interference . Other than that I wouldn't think there would be much difference .
