    Do the songs that iTunes cannot Match, and so has to upload, use the 5GB of free iCloud storage?

    The 5GB storage is iCloud data storage and NOT Music Match storage.

    I think you can have up to 25,000 songs on your iTunes Match account.

    And yes it does not use any storage of your iCloud account

    25,000 is a limit for uploaded and matched songs. iTunes purchased songs don't count so if you buy your music from iTunes there is NO limit.

    So if you have 24,000 songs you ripped from your CD's and bought 30,000 songs from iTunes you would be fine with 54,000 songs in Match account.

    Absolutely correct.

    Actually there is an non-easy way to work around the 25,000 limit. Here is one from MacWorld, http://www.macworld.com/article/163599/2011/11/dealing_with_itunes_matchs_25_000_track_limit.html
