10/4/2004 The copy is a spell, so it can be targeted by other spells and abilities that target a spell.

10/4/2004 The spell copy has all the text and can result in itself being copied.
10/1/2009 As Chain Lightning resolves, the targeted player, or the controller of the targeted creature, may copy it. The copy has the same text, target, and color of the resolving spell, though the player who’s copying it may choose a new target for it. Once that copy is created (or not), the resolving Chain Lightning has finished resolving and leaves the stack.
10/1/2009 If the targeted creature or player is an illegal target by the time Chain Lightning resolves, the spell is countered. It won’t be copied.
