Users angry over data in iTunes Plus tracks

Personal data hidden inside DRM-free, iTunes Plus tracks being offered on the iTunes Store is causing anger amongst some users. Some customers are worried that the data could be used to identify them should the track turn up on file-sharing services, while other users are simply concerned about their online privacy. As mentioned in an earlier iLounge report, all tracks purchased from the iTunes Store, both Fairplay and iTunes Plus versions, are tagged with both the name and email address of the purchaser. Apple has yet to officially comment on the matter.
