Does iTunes put my iTunes account information in track files when I import CD albums? I never shared any music because I prefer to buy original CDs but if someone stoles some files of mine can my account be traced back? I imported my CD collection last year.

Ripped/imported audio tracks do not get any account information embedded.

This does not apply to tracks matched via iTunes Match and replaced by the AAC version from the store. These tracks do contain your Apple ID
