I had to go to the zope cookbook today to get this script so I thought
I'd paste it here for you as well. It may help you. It is from this

##### to copy something from a folder

copy_info = some_folder.manage_copyObjects(('object_foo',
                                            'object_bar',
                                            'object_baz')
                                           )

# The argument to manage_copyObjects is a tuple of object IDs which must exist
# in the folder where you call the method.
# The returned result is clipboard data, suitable for putting in a cookie.
# but we don't need cookies if we're copying and pasting in one
# script.
## If you WANT the clipboard in a cookie, maybe because you're
# going to paste it later in some other script, you need to
# pass in a REQUEST like so:

copy_info = some_folder.manage_copyObjects(('object_foo',
                                            'object_bar',
                                            'object_baz'),
                                           REQUEST
                                           )
# The cookie is set in REQUEST.RESPONSE.



#### To cut stuff from a folder

copy_info = some_folder.manage_cutObjects(('object_foo',
                                            'object_bar',
                                            'object_baz')
                                           )
# ... it's just like manage_copyObjects


#### To delete things completely - no cut, no paste, just gone

some_folder.manage_delObjects(('object_foo',
                               'object_bar')
                              )



#### To paste the result of a cut or copy into a folder

some_other_folder.manage_pasteObjects(copy_info)










########## A complete copy / paste example

# get the source and destination parent folders
dest_base = context.restrictedTraverse('/foo/bar/baz')
src_base = context.restrictedTraverse('/fool/bear/booze')

folds = src_base.objectItems('Folder') # where the objects to copy live
for src_id, src_obj in folds:
   # prepare the destination
   try:
      # we might have run the script already, or the destination
      # might just exist already.
      dest = getattr(dest_base, src_id)
      print 'folder exists already',
   except AttributeError:
      # make sure the destination is there.
      dest_base.manage_addProduct['OFSP'].manage_addFolder(src_id, '')
      dest = getattr(dest, s_id)
   print dest.absolute_url()

   # now the real work, actually quite easy
   try:
      copy_info = src_obj.manage_copyObjects(('stylesheet_properties',))
      print "  copied...",
      d.manage_pasteObjects(copy_info)
      print "pasted!"
   except:
      print "...couldn't paste it there."


return printed
