The value of a bit

I am looking for blog posts / articles about someone who created an empty mp3 and another mp3 of copyrighted music but with the sound level at 0. The argument posed was that the files were binary equivalents, but one was still a copyright violation. Therefore, there is not only a digital value to a bit, but also a "color" or "flavor" to it.
