My understanding is that it was invented by Microsoft for the MSWord
1.0, chosen closely on the keyboard for convenience. Finding the
command key missing on DOS based computers (Windows didn't exist yet,
the the Mac is a personal computer), this became control-C, etc later
on in MS apps that ran on top of DOS (including Windows).
