Everyone who uses apple anything knows full well that their services for anything "official" is a messy piece of shit that is best left alone.
Then they go mixing shit like the one related on the article? They are asking for it, that person only read the mandatory disclaimer AFTER getting bum invaded, which I bet it wasn't even read by the person but rather pointed out by a tier two support upon threatening to sue apple.

Also, not having backups of your own fucking music and saving the only originals to itunes library. Natural selection at its best.

I'm not inclined to take this at face value at all. There's probably some setting to "free up space after uploading" in Apple Music that's off by default and this retard turned it on without knowing what it was and is now angry and using the internet as a platform for his story where he conveniently leaves out his stupid shit.
If this were a real thing, why does everyone here with the service report that their music is all fine?

If you’re wondering why Apple hasn’t been sued yet, it’s because the iTunes Terms of Use vaguely warn of this issue, then later indemnify Apple and preclude any litigation from users who’ve been boned:

“iCloud Music Library is turned on automatically when you set up your Apple Music Subscription…When your Apple Music Subscription term ends, you will lose access to any songs stored in your iCloud Music Library.

Apple’s Terms of Use, Abridged.
…YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE APPLE MUSIC SERVICE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.

How can be anyone so stupid to enable this shit? Muh fucking sides xDDDDD

If he chooses to use the feature that does it, it's not related to the service. Other cucks who use Apple Music had no problems.

@eGremlin
At least inform yourself before making shit claims. As bad as it is you only have your music there if you either press acceptlol on everything without reading or you actively put it there.
You can have selected content only transfered to itunes or none at all.
By far am I defending this piece of shit that baffles me how it still exists, just pointing out that for this to happen as it did just shows that you do not know what you are doing and shouldn't even be doing it to begin with.
Because you know, consequences will never be the same.

iCloud Music Library works this way: It checks your Library for songs in iTunes Music Store, if songs matches it puts it in a checklist, everything else gets uploaded (there are size and duration limits but it's the original file). You can decide to keep the download locally or to delete it locally but use the iCloud Library to Stream it. If you don't choose to delete it locally there's literally no problem.
I have a huge amount of remixes that's not on Apple Music and those files are still on my SSD as well.

Also, to delete album artwork see pic related.

So, let me get this straight.

He turned on cloud sync and as part of the sync it moved the files onto iCloud and deleted the local copies. And that's it?

Damn this is some quality click-bait, I'll give it that.

If you’re wondering why Apple hasn’t been sued yet, it’s because the iTunes Terms of Use vaguely warn of this issue, then later indemnify Apple and preclude any litigation from users who’ve been boned:

Even if it is explicitly written in the agreement Apple should be liablee for deleting valuable information without explicit mention.

Imagine that a program stores child porn on the HDD and it is written in such way so that will necessarily happen (it is designed this way and this is visible upon expection of machine code or sources). Will the developer be liable for that? In my opinion: yes, they will, even if they said that they do not guarantee that a program won't store child porn on a PC. Saying that you are not liable for something being deleted accidentially does not mean that you may do it intentionally and woon't be sued.
