Had a question about iTunes Match that I can't seem to find an answer to. There are a few threads that discuss the matter, but none with definitive answers. From what I understand, iTunes will match your library and allow you to replace any tracks with the "updated" match versions. My question is, when I decide to stop paying for iTunes match, what happens to those "matched" songs in my library. I gather that if you have replaced the tracks in your library with "matched" tracks, that the "matched" tracks will remain on your device. Is this accurate? Assuming it is, do those tracks count as music purchased from iTunes or not? Will they still be available to download from iCloud or not? Music bought from iTunes is free to store in iCloud, while other music requires a subscription to iTunes Match. That's why I'm wondering, once a song is matched is it considered purchased or is it still a "ripped" file just at the higher bit rate? Thanks!
