"The Caisson Song" (1908) by (then) Lt. (later Brig. Gen.) Edmund Louis Gruber (1879-1941), reharmonized and arranged by John Philip Sousa in 1917 as "The Field Artillery Song" was published and copyrighted at that time by Carl Fischer. Sousa’s 1917 arrangement was made as though it were a composition from the Civil War era by an anonymous composer. Years later E.L. Gruber tried to sue for copyright infringement; however, the courts ruled against him saying that he had waited too long to file his petition, and that the copyright for the Sousa’s arrangement was legally Sousa’s. Sousa’s original 1917 arrangement, from which this arrangement was made, is now in the public domain.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
