I have a company that is using Server 2012 Remote App services and one of their remote apps is a windows share.  They have found that users can copy and paste data from the share to their local machine.  Is there way of blocking this from happening?

On the server, use regedit:
browse to
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\Winstations\RDP-Tcp
set fDisableClip value set to 1

However, you probably have a bigger universal problem (you want people be able to read, but not copy). This is always an issue, which you can't resolve 100% (ever thought of that people can just use their phone to take a picture of the screen, no matter how much you try to lock it down?).
Also, people can probably also email or transfer the file if they really want it.

Would this stop people from copying text from their local machine into something like a word document on the terminal server?

Yes, if you want to take such rigorous actions, you have to live with the fact that you're inhibiting other ways of productivity.
