>> How can I copy groups and permissions across sites?


SharePoint doesn't provide OOTB features to copy groups and permissions across groups and sites. But there are several solutions for this:

1) Copy groups with permissions with site

You can make a copy of your site and groups with permissions will be copied as well. To do this you need to export and import your site via STSADM with -includeusersecurity parameter

STSADM -o export -url <site_name> -filename <file> -includeusersecurity
STSADM -o import -url <new_site_name> -filename <file> -includeusersecurity

2) Copy permissions

DeliverPoint tool might be a right choice, because they provide Copy Permissions functionality.

3) Copy groups only

Haven't seen any tools for this
