Titled 'Dispelling the Myth: Misleading Claims Around Key Copy Protection', the latest ASSA ABLOY white paper can be downloaded for free from keycopywhitepaper.

It then goes on to discuss the myths surrounding these, and the steps that must be taken to ensure a system has the correct protection in place so keys cannot be copied.
