It would be, unless they are morons. But since the latter is always true, it won't. So the better way to implement this option is to pop up a box saying: "The authors of this PDF don't really want you to copy anything to clipboard. Most probably they like it more when you type it all back yourself, since this is apparently better for your fingers. Would you care to [honor it] [ignore it] [and don't ever show this again!]"
