I haven't really looked into it, but won't they give you high quality mp3s of any mp3s on your hard drive, and store them in the cloud? Once that was done, would they be giving you a license to that music, or would you still need to own the CD?
I don't use iTunes, so I'm basing this reply on zero knowledge but I would have thought that iTunes Match would only match tracks that you've actually bought through iTunes, rather than stuff you've ripped yourself.
I might be wrong but I'd be surprised if your suggestion was the case.
It stores music you've ripped yourself too.
But does it improve the quality? Must admit I'm surprised, I wouldn't have thought it would be in Apple's interest to provide a copy of a track that can't be shown to have been legally purchased.
