Code for using pipe straps?

I am running some 1/2" copper pipe horizontally several inches below my ceiling and I'm planning on supporting the pipe with a strap similar to that shown at this link:

How often should the straps be spaced? What's generally the code for such a thing?

Thanks.

Thanks. If the pipe runs vertical, then bends to horizontal, the first strap should be 6' from the elbow? Or, should the first strap be at the elbow, then again 6' after?

Well...on a straight run you can use the 6' and 10' rule....but any time you have a change of direction you should have a strap.
