    Something I noticed when downloading music to my work computer with iTunes Match.

    I have a lot of foreign music that is not available through iTunes (or in digital format at all). When I downloaded it to the new computer I noticed that Get Info shows my email address in the "Purchased By" field on all the songs.

    Not a big deal really, but something to think about ;)

    I don't mind that at all especially since I get the mastered for iTunes displayed on those tracks that are and that I never purchased from iTunes.

    If it goes up to iTunes Match, it comes down with these metadata as a concession to the record companies to allow their music in iTunes match. essentially so you can't pirate a bunch of music and then download the iTunes copies and pirate those to others.
