I usually copy and paste by emulating the second and third button on the
mouse (or even more simple, attaching an external USB mouse :P).

My procedure: Edit /etc/sysctl.conf and append:

dev.mac_hid.mouse_button2_keycode = 88
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button3_keycode = 87

Restart. Whoo, restart? Oh, my! Geez! Yes, restart.

Therefore, I use F12 as the right click and F11 as the middle button.
