Apple Music messing with my local files.

No Apple Music subscription. No iTunes Match subscription. 4G disabled for Music App. Local files synced with iTunes.

Yet Apple Music manages to change the perfect album art I embed to my songs and add copyright info to my local files that have no more than artist, album, track, disc, title, genre and lyrics metadata.

A track from a local file took from a physical album that I own wasn't "available in my country". I had to sync everything again to fix it and disabled the internet connection of the Music App just in case.
