You can find the function called by any keybinding by running
describe-key via C-h k , then your key sequence, e.g. command-v.
This can also be run via menubar: Help-->Describe-->Describe Key or
Mouse Operation

You'll find that command-v (paste) is bound to cua-paste and command-c
(copy) is bound to cua-copy.
