You might want to read how Python searches for modules
and how Python packages work (--> Python Language Reference manual).

"import CopyContainer" searches the current package for the
module "CopyContainer" and then the directories listed in
"sys.path" (initialized from "PYTHONPATH" and some default

Now, "CopyContainer" is not a module at all but a class
defined in "OFS.CopySupport".
You would access it via

    from OFS.CopySupport import CopyContainer
