Rollforward image copies and retension - explanation needed .

Hi,
I'm trying to understand how rman deals with such script
recover copy of database with tag DB_BACKUP 
until time 'sysdate-8'; 
backup incremental level 1 for recover of 
copy with tag DB BACKUP database;
How old my image copy is in such scenario ?
What if I do switch database to copy ?
How much recovery is needed if I want switch to copy at day 7 .
Regards
