It's odd because the movie is on iTunes but now only to rent. Yet I have Transformers still available to download from the cloud but completely removed from the store.
Definitely send Apple an inquiry and post what they say..

Really?

Just now I went to iTunes Store. The very first item under "Music" is an album by Drake, titled "Nothing Was The Same". I clicked on this album and was presented a screen that says:

$13.99 Buy

It says "Buy", it doesn't say "rent", or "borrow" or "license". It doesn't say "Buy a license".

Why does Apple get to pervert the usage of a "verb" that has a very simple meaning to most people?

All the iCloud servers are shut down.
What happens to your online purchases then?
Here we agree. You still have the responsibility to store your "purchases". And never buy anything DRMed. E.g. check out "Microsoft PlaysForSure" to see how the evil empire tried to screw people over with their "purchased" music.

It doesn't say "Own" either. You never own music regardless of medium. Either CD or Download, you don't own it in any legal sense of the word.

You are complaining about Apple's wording but not the 20 years industry standard? I think that there is a bigger picture that you should be complaining about.

It ended up coming back on it's own also it's now available to buy again.

These can still come and go.

Bullcrap. It IS Apple's fault. They should not sell something the have NO RIGHT to sell and they should make this plain when they put the word "Buy" in front of a movie that it means "temporarily lease" instead.
