If you're connecting to the vms with remote desktop, I don't believe the fact they are running under Hyper-V enters into the issue.  In your Remote Desktop Connection, before you connect to the remote system, you should have a button to "Show Options".  Select "Show Options", then the "Local resources" tab.  At the bottom of the screen, you'll have the option to make your Local Clipboard available.  You'll want to make it available in each of your remote desktop sessions.

Sorry about the delay, apparently there are significant differences between 2008 R2 and 2012 R2 (and my lab machines are the latter...)

Couple things to try / confirm:
Make certain your are using at least RDP 7.0, and upgrade if you have older.  (If you have Win 7 on your desktop, you probably already have 7.1, and should be good.)

The process that SHOULD be taking care of the clipboard and notifications from the remote machine is rdpclip.exe on the server.  Try opening Task Manager and killing rdpclip.exe running under your permissions.  Then "'start'->'run': rdpclip.exe" to restart it.  It looks like some folks have had success that way.
