With digital art, I don't see any difference between the original and copies and wouldn't consider one to have more value than the other.

With physical art, take say a Van Gogh. There isn't any 'real' difference between the original and a molecular level copy, but the for me the original was in the presence of the man himself, each one of those strokes was placed there with his hand. The copy might show you exactly where he placed the brush strokes, but they weren't placed there by Van Gogh. I would love such a copy of Starry Night, but I wouldn't expect to pay anywhere near what the original would cost.
