You can get a screen DC by calling

      HDC hdcScreen = ::GetDC(NULL);

Given that DC, you can use StretBlt() to copy the bitmap on the screen to your own DC.  Then, you can use GetObject() get the raw bitmap bits and load up your own HBITMAP structure to toss onto the clipboard.

I think a couple of the SDK samples have source code that demonstrates this kind of thing.
