    You can copy text using Adobe Acrobat reader unless the creator of that PDF has explicity turned that option off.

    Copying pictures/graphs/charts is a tad more difficult and I've never had good success with that. Maybe just take a screenshot? Or just talk about the work and cite the paper in your list of references?
