    I can't seem to find a way to use songs I've downloaded from Apple Music in my keynote presentation. Does anybody know if this is possible?

    Unless you can find tracks that are not copyrighted how could you use them? Unless you have a way to prove your Keynote presentation was for personal use only you can't legally use copyrighted material.

    Then why am I able to pull any other song I've purchased off iTunes into Keynote? Seems like I should be able to use both and only get in trouble when I use it in a public setting...

    You can use purchased music from iTunes because you paid for it and the file is yours. Apple Music is only rented music. You pay a monthly fee to be able to listen to it but you can't freely move the files around like you can with actual purchased songs.

    You don't own any software (music, books movies,....). You only own a license to use it under certain conditions like personal/private use. It is illegal to use copyrighted music for Keynote presentations unless you obtain permission from the copyright holder/artist.

    Your link is about using music in a YouTube videos and not really related to what the OP asked. It's not illegal to use music you've purchased in a personal keynote not made for monetary gain. (Same way someone is allowed to make copies of their purchased movies but only for personal use and not to make money.)

    Stuff downloaded from Apple Music though is DRM'd and can only be played from iTunes (OS X) or the Music app (iOS) and only if you have a subscription. That is why the OP is able to use purchases he bought from iTunes and not downloaded music off Apple Music.

    Copyright law is complex and mirky. Also it is not just always about using for "monetary gain". It is more about depriving the artist. I'm not trying to debate copyright law but just explaining why it is not allowed or legal.

    There are probably Keynote uses that WOULD be legal like making a presentation for your family. However Keynote is primarily used in commercial or business situations and this is why Apple (or any other streaming service) could not allow it.

    It's about not using the music for monetary gain or publicly (like a video posted on YouTube or anywhere on the Internet.)

    It's not depriving an artist if you've paid in full for their song or album and use it in a personal project.

    Streamed music is not allowed because you are basically renting it. Any music you get off any streaming service (Apple Music, Spotify and so on) can only be played from their app. This stops anyone from signing up for one month and downloading 500gigs of music for just $9.99. Again streamed music only works in the app of that streaming service. This is why the OP can't use music he's downloaded for offline use from Apple Music in Keynote, but is allowed to use purchased songs he bought in iTunes.

    Again you can't legally use copyrighted material in a Keynote presentation without the content owners permission. Regardless of what the source is, iTunes, Spotify, CD, 8-track, LP or Apple Music, it is still copyright infringement.

    Read below to help you understand copyright law and Keynote usage.

    The OP wanted to know WHY he couldn't import music he obtained from Apple Music but could import music he purchased. Wether it is "morally" right or wrong wasn't what was asked. I explained why Apple Music songs can't be imported into keynote. (Music off streaming services only work in their own app.) You're going way off on the legal things of using music. It's not a question of if its legal or not (that's a whole other topic.) The question was why his AM stuff wouldn't import into keynote.
