Information Theory and Adaptation

I wonder how information theory (from the fields of computer science, mathematics and communication studies) can be applied to transmedia adaptations.  Information theory focuses on how information is transmitted with special attention given to the errors/data loss in the process.  Is data lost in adaptations?

Is this comparison mere metaphor or something more?
