Placing cat6 cable through copper downspout interference?

I plan to replace the cat5e cable running from my NVR system to one of my failed cables going outside to a IP camera. The only difference is I want to route the cable through the downspout that's copper. Will I face major interference issues by doing this? Currently the old wire was wired right up against the downspout already against the house. The cat6 spool I bought is the link below.

Rather than interference, I would think it would help shield you from interference.
