"wx.Clipboard represents the system clipboard and provides methods to
copy data to it or paste data from it.  Normally, you should only use
``wx.TheClipboard`` which is a reference to a global wx.Clipboard

Call ``wx.TheClipboard``'s `Open` method to get ownership of the
clipboard. If this operation returns True, you now own the
clipboard. Call `SetData` to put data on the clipboard, or `GetData`
to retrieve data from the clipboard.  Call `Close` to close the
clipboard and relinquish ownership. You should keep the clipboard open
only momentarily.
