Magnet induces a current in the copper as the field moves through the conductor, the induced current produces an opposing magnetic field. It's a well known effect.

without introducing additional energy, a side from anything just ... around... how could you slow the falling magnet even further? Remembering this is a non ferrous material.

Would the same thing happen using a 'ring' shaped magnet, like a donut, going over the pipe, not in it?

What would happen in a curve I wonder? A complete ring?! Does a stronger magnet = slower fall? Does a bigger pipe and stronger magnet = slower fall?

After seeing that I am quite energised myself! LOL

Here's one for you to try, take a plastic tube and wrap wire tightly around it from one end to the other, and attach a small light bulb to both lead ends and drop a neodymium magnet through the tube, the light bulb will glow as long as the magnet is moving through the tube, it's a linear electrical generator.
