Source of coding instructions found here.
tar -xvzf Copy.tgz
# optional clean-up
# If your Ubuntu is Ubuntu 64bits:

sudo ./CopyCmd Overlay install

sudo cp -r * /opt/copy
rm -r copy
I used these code to install it in Ubuntu and on my openSUSE systems. Running on openSUSE threw an error but that is because openSUSE is running KDE and not Unity/Gnome.
I actually have more space in my Copy.com account than I do on the systems' hard drives! So I am considering making an "Archive" folder and not synchronizing it so I could upload files manually and store them in the Archive folder as a backup without having to worry about filling up my hard drives.
