telnet is a tty program, which never handles Cut&Paste.
Probably you mean your term (xterm, dtterm, etc.), did you?

You can cut and paste if you run telnet in a terminal window under X. Try selecting the text you want, focusing on the application you want to paste into and hitting the middle mouse button (if you don't have a middle button then try pressing both left and right together).

To paste, select text in another application and focus on the xterm/rxvt window and hit the middle button.

Otherwise try minicom that comes with the Red Hat distribution

samirbi, sounds that there are typos in your answer ;-)

Usually xterm is configured as follows:

  Copy:    mouse button 1
  Extend:  mouse button 3
  Paste:   mouse button 2

Where 1,2,3 counts in western stile from left to right, if you have configured for a right-hand mouse. So Button 1 is the left one, button 2 the middle one and button 3 the right one.
Old solaris (2.1.x etc.) usually act like SunOS, where Extend is button 2 and Paste is button 3.
Dtterm has no extend (by default).
Console tty's may use Copy&Paste too , if gpm is running.

Hmm, question not answered.
I would say that you cannot ask such a question in a UNIX/Linux topic, 'cause telnet here is not like a Window's telnet (see my 1'st comment). But if this was your intention, telnet like in Windows, the answer is simply NO.
