Apple Music is one of the most popular music subscription services in the world similar to Spotify and Amazon Music. It owns over 40 million songs in library. Unlike iTunes music which supports to download offline and listen with only one-time fee, Apple Music has DRM copyright protection and it requires you to pay the subscription fee on annual basis to continue to enjoy the music.

What is worse, even if you have paid for the service, you can't get full use of them due to the DRM protection. For example, you can't download Apple Music on portable player offline easily as there is no Apple Music app supported for it.
