How can I define a global shortcuts for copy, cut and paste?

I'm used to Mac's +C for copy and +V for paste. They are global, so I can use them interchanging data between CLI and GUI apps.

How can one configure global shortcuts, e.g ⊞ Win+C (copy) and +V (paste) in Ubuntu 12.04?

Update: I've created a feature request at brainstorm.ubuntu.com

Have you tried the same in Ubuntu? –  Mitch Jun 8 '13 at 11:31
    
Yes. ⊞ Win+C pops the "search photos" screen. –  Adam Matan Jun 8 '13 at 11:35
    
Try ⌘+C in Ubuntu –  Mitch Jun 8 '13 at 11:37
    
I don't have a key - it's a windows laptop keyboard with a key. –  Adam Matan Jun 8 '13 at 11:55
