from g.copy manual page:

"g.copy allows the user to copy existing data files from other mapsets to the
user's current mapset ($MAPSET). The files to be copied must exist in the
user's current mapset search path and location;"

and from the g.mapsets manual page:

"Modifies the user's current mapset search path, affecting the user's access
to data existing under the other GRASS mapsets in the current location."

Doesn't this solve your problem ?
