Nothing is wrong. This is the default behavior of Windows itself.

When you move a file, it keeps its permissions, as it should. When you 
copy a file, it acquires the permissions of the destination folder.

With Windows 7 there has been some modification to this default 
behavior. Please consult the Microsoft technical pages about this.
