"Copy" is a front end token that copies the selection to the Clipboard without deleting it from your notebook.
This token is equivalent to the menu command Edit Copy.
You can then insert the copied material elsewhere using the front end token "Paste".
To execute a front end token, you typically evaluate a command of the form FrontEndExecute[FrontEndToken[token]].
