I have never before heard anyone complain of copper oxidizing wort.
Most of the judges I know use copper immersion chillers, none has
ever complained of oxidized beer. Another reference point is the
fact that brewers, both big and small, have and continue to use
copper boiling vessels, which if copper conmtacting hot wort were
the problem, would be news...

My take on this is the person who told you this simply does not
know what they're talking about.
