It is well known that the arithmetic mean of two possibly different copulas forms a copula, again. More general, we focus on the weighted power mean (WPM) of two arbitrary copulas which is not necessary a copula again, as different counterexamples reveal. However, various conditions regarding the mean function and the underlying copula are given which guarantee that a proper copula (so-called WPM copula) results. In this case, we also derive dependence properties of WPM copulas and give some brief application to financial return series.
