To be fair, one does not exclude the other. And nobody specified to what
the 100% is supposed to apply to. Being oxygen free does not necessarily
imply that it can't be a highly resistive magnetic alloy that by sheer
accident contains trace quantities of actual copper. Or does it
possibly mean that the cable is 100% pure, Copper and oxygen free? 100%
pure cable, nothing added to it...
