    Ok, first of all, I was an iTunes Match and Apple Music subscriber, but before not renewing iTunes Match, I asked and told that if I keep my Apple music subscribtion, I would not lose my iCloud music library.

    But its been a month now since my iTunes Match subscription ended, and I keep my Apple music membership, and today I found that the majority of the track in my iCloud music library is greyed out. So, am I screwed? I think the information and difference between the two service is not explained well and now I think I lose all my matched songs (and many of them is not on AP) If I knew clearly that I would lose all my matched music, I would never unsubscribe Match, but I read many article about that and they all says that is I keep my AP active, I won't use my matched music, and all I lose is DRM free.

    So, is somebody here had this issue before?

    Did you delete your collection off your pc or something? How could you be 'screwed'? I assume you did a backup first?

    Apple Music is drm, no pay no play. I'm fine with that because I have my whole 13,000 song collection on an sdcard in my desk.
