It's not a hard hyphen, then. It's tagged as an "end of line" hyphen (the kind you use when splitting a word at the end of a line so it can continue in the next one), and is therefore removed by Acrobat when the text is copied.

An hyphen is something "virtual", it's not part of the text.

Well, that depends. Hyphens in the middle of a phrase are certainly part of the text, like in "middle-aged", but hyphens that appear at the end of a line are (usually) not, although they can be, like in the example file above.

That's why it's important to encode them correctly.
