How can I duplicate smart objects and make them separate in Photoshop CS6?

In **Photoshop** I can copy and paste Illustrator paths as a **smart object**, and then double click this smart object to edit it in **Illustrator**.When I duplicate this smart object (say to change the colour scheme of a logo I'm designing and offer a client multiple colour schemes) and edit the newly created smart object, BOTH objects change. It's one of those Adobe quirks where I'm not quite sure if it's a feature or a bug :)Anyway, in order to offer separate colour schemes of a logo in one `.psb` file, I'd like to know how to edit derivative smart objects independently of each other :)
