Here is the solution:
Start the clipbook service in the NT service manager, open system32\clipbrd.exe, and delete all the contents, now copy from the pdf again.

Another way to fix this problem is to install Foxit Reader.

Are your problem PDFs from a common source?

It might be a cross platform encoding issue, though I do tons of cross-platform PDF stuff and have only seen that error a couple times.
