Hello community,

I'm considering subscribing to iTunes Match for, say, a year, to see how it fares with a very varied, mid'size music collection. I undertstood that, if a song was found in iTune's database ("matched") with a better bitrate one, all that would be needed would be to delete the local copy and re-download the iCloud version.

However, I still feel concerned about privacy. I know these iCloud servers are located in a country that has no respect whatsoever for privacy. Rather, I would prefer that my downloaded songs not to bear my name, email address or any personal information. I am not sure what is the usage of is since iTunes tracks don't come hampered by DRM anymore (but videos still are). I know Privatunes was one easy way to do it, but seems it is abandoned.

Any software that could remove all personal info in batch from AAC files, wether there are lossy or lossless?
MacBook Pro 8,1, 16GB, 750GB
Mac OS X 10.6.8 as main OS (Thanks, trusty old BlackBook!), 10.7.3 for playing around.
Politely tell Apple what they did wrong with Mavericks: give them feedback!
