default access permission when we copy files

hi all,
How to make a default access permission for a group when we copy files ?
for example : when I copy files to a certain folder I want the access permission of those files should be read and write, now when I copied to that folder the access permission was only read and I had to do a 'chmod' manually.

Thanks in advance.

umm, whats the original files permissions?

anyways, use the command "install", it will copy files and set new permissions on the copies.
