Hi,

Trident and WebKit both implement beforecopy, beforecut, and beforepaste
events.
These events need to be spec'ed in
http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/clipops/clipops.html

Most significantly, those events appear to be fired when UAs try to
determine whether copy, cut, and paste menu items in their native UI should
be enabled or not. e.g. they fire when context menu is to be shown.

Best,
