Any tips on machining/turning copper?

I just want to know from anyone that has machined copper before if there's a better way of cutting copper. I have always worked on stainless, aluminum and tungsten. I was thinking on treating it as aluminum and using some of the turning inserts I use for aluminum since they're both "sticky". My main problem is the chips not breaking and sticking on my tools. Since I work in an automated shop, this issue makes it difficult running it un-attended.

Several tips here:
