Persisting Author aspect

I have noticed in Alfresco 2.1 that the Alfresco-defined Author aspect tends to disappear in documents when they are copied to other spaces.  It persists when a document is moved. 

When the document is a .pdf file which has the author property filled then it is OK.  But when the author is not filled out and I add it after importing it into a space, it goes away when the document is copied (but not when it is moved) to another space.

Is there anything I can do to prevent this.  Adding a workrule that extracts common metadata from incoming content doesn't seem to make any difference.
