The pdf file might be composed as a picture of the text. Then you can't 
copy it as text because there is no text. Sometimes you can see the 
pixels of that picture if you magnify the view to 800% or more. However I 
don't know if that is possible with kpdf - usually I use the Adobe reader 
for pdf files.
