Copy paste isn't allowed without networking between them, but if your concern is only to copy/paste text, then you can use VNC and then:-
Code:
~$ vncconfig --nowin &
This is the simplest method I know. Rest, you can configure networking between Win7 and Linux and use ther utilities like samba or WinSCP etc.

Usually you need to add in tools to the host's vm application.
