Another way is to use VBA to reset the CutCopyMode property. This doesn't work if macros are disabled.

Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal sh As Object, _ 
                                  ByVal Target As Range)
   Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub

6) Is it possible to prevent a user from copying cell values from a worksheet ?
Yes. One way to prevent the cells from being selected is by unlocking all the other cells and then protecting the worksheet by unticking 'select locked cells'.

UsedRange - the cell range of all the used cells on the worksheet.
CurrentRegion - the cell range inside blank rows and columns.
