Just because I don't login for a few months, DOESN'T make it okay to delete my itunes account and all my purchases!
:wtf:

Dammit itunes, I can't pay for any of those now!

Also, this is why I download my songs as .m4a and keep them in a separate folder after getting them. I would suggest the same to anyone who uses iTunes.

Rip Youtube videos -> become a pirate.
Buy from iTunes -> shit happens -> rip the Youtube video to get your stuff back -> become a pirate.

That's pretty much what I did :lol: Ripped youtube vids for the few songs I wanted back that I didn't have the CDs for. xD

I did not know they deleted accounts like that. I guess that's just one more reason why I should use itunes as little as possible. (Other reasons being it's big, slow, takes forever to launch and deliver genius results, inexplicably duplicates entire albums filling up space on my devices needlessly, etc.)

I don't know why they deleted it, but I know they did, because they let me sign up again with the exact same email I used before.

You'd think you'd be able to keep the song due to the fact itunes got rid of DRM's from songs, but then again, I'm not very educated with apple xD
Yeah... Might be due to the fact you didn't back up and never logged in for a long time. phone apple or email them or something. A friend of mine had problems with their security questions once.

The deletion of your account or give you a refund for the music on there or restore your music that you had previously bought.

Something like that.

Why not use an .mp3 converter? You purchased the song, all you will be doing is backing it up in a format that is actually safe to keep without disappearing.
Who wants a song format that will disappear within three months or be incompatible with a lot of devices, iTunes (or shall I say iLoons)?

I always assumed they were protected against it, since you can't even play them if you haven't logged into the account it was downloaded from on the computer you try to play it on.

That is bad. I downloaded a couple of songs from iTunes lately (I wanted to support the artist) and had no problems.

Except for the fact that one of my favorites was from an indie artist, and they're not on the radios.
