Surely you don't think that anyone is going to say Bizet ...

Bizet thought (or at least, said he thought) that he had borrowed the tune from a traditional Spanish folk song. In fact, he had borrowed it from a song written scarcely twenty years earlier by a Basque musician called Sebastián Iradier Salaberri.

He did eventually admit his theft, and the real composer's name appeared as a footnote.

A similar unintentional plagiarism occurred with the Italian popular song 'Funiculí, Finiculá' (which is about a railway).
Quote:
Six years after "Funiculě, Funiculŕ" was composed, German composer Richard Strauss heard the song while on a tour of Italy. Thinking that it was a traditional Italian folk song, he later incorporated it into his Aus Italien tone poem. Denza filed a lawsuit against Strauss and eventually won. Strauss was forced to pay him a royalty fee every time the Aus Italien was performed in public. Modernist composer Arnold Shoenberg set a version for string quartet which was used in an episode of the TV sitcom Seinfeld.

It may have been composed by Christian Petzold, but it was written by Mrs Bach.

Similarly Felix Mendelssohn's sister Fanny is reckoned to have composed and orchestrated many of her brother's work. She was a talented musician as well but suffered from the sexist views of the time.
