icloud: what happens to home recordings and original songs after itunes uploads them to the icloud, from an artist rights perspective? YANML

i just recently bought into icloud and pushed my itunes library up to the cloud. i realized towards the end of the process that apple couldn't find matches for lots of my files, which are home recordings of songs by myself and friends, some of them covers, etc. since these recordings didn't match anything in their catalog, apple uploaded the songs to the cloud.
so i know that in the future i can stream these songs to myself, but what is the longer term prognosis for my rights to this creative material? (not that i have definite plans to sell these songs, just that understanding the rights business might affect how i treat future recordings.) bonus points for comparisons with rights for similar situations on other cloud services!
