For a scriptless solution that's purely property-driven, what Jacque said covers normal click-and-drag selection at the small cost of multi-click selection.

And if you need multi-click selection and don't mind a small bit of scripting, putting this in a normal editable field seems to make it uneditable well enough while still allowing Copy to work:

on rawkeydown k
   if k = 99 then
      if the commandKey is "down" then copy
   end if
end rawkeydown
