ctrl+c & ctrl+v equivalent for Gnome terminal window?

In Windows I can hit control+c and control+v for copying and pasting. Is there a shortcut I can use in the terminal window? Or does the terminal not understand shortcuts?

shift+ctrl+c and shift+ctrl+v should work.

Also, X11 copies whatever you highlight with the mouse and pastes when you middle-click
