Before I sign up for iTunes Match, I want to double check something. I understand that according to Apple, "iTunes purchases do not count against [the 25,000 song iTunes Match] limit."

 

I have a pretty big library, and, along the way, I've purchased songs from the iTunes Store using two different iTunes accounts, let's call them Account #1 and Account #2.

 

If I sign up for iTunes Match using Acount #1, will the songs that I purchased with Account #2 count against the 25,000 limit?

 

For example, let's say that my library contains the following (I'm just making up numbers here):

 

50,000 songs purchased from iTunes Store with Account #1

14,999 songs purchased from iTunes Store with Account #2

10,000 songs imported from CDs.

 

Will iTunes Match say that I have 24,999 songs counting against the limit (Account #2 + CDs), or will it say that I have only 10,000 songs (CDs only) counting against the limit?

 

From my reading of Apple's iTunes Store Terms & Conditions, I think it will say that I have 24,999 songs counting against the limit, but I'm not a lawyer, so I wanted to know if anyone can confirm how it works.
