You can not access the system clipboard directly from LC-HTML5.

But you can use javascript (clipboard.js) to do that or simply
write to a DOM-text field (<input type="text") and let the user
copy it from there.

You can script both variants, use clipboard.js or write to a
DOM-field, by LC's "do as javascript".
