from copy import copy, deepcopy
t = 1, 2
t1 = t, 3
t2 = t1, 4
t3 = t2, 5
assert copy(t3) is t3
assert deepcopy(t3) is t3

s = frozenset({1, 2})
assert s.copy() is s  # method .copy() always returns self, what its purpose?
assert copy(s) is s
assert deepcopy(s) is s  # raises AssertionError

Even a deepcopy of a tuple with many nested tuples is the the tuple itself, while a deepcopy of a frozenset which by definition cannot contain mutable objects is a new frozenset.
I think it is an error. A new frozenset is created because deepcopy() fallbacks to pickling.
