I second what Ralf says.

There is a nice Russian article on the subject. Shortly speaking, it is
about the fact that art has always been standing on other artists'
shoulders. But now such a stance is denied to artists and it is sometimes
even deemed shameful if you are using synth presets, instead of coming up
with your own. So the article speaks of how the cult of originality has
toned down creativity and that songwriters spend too much time trying to
make original presets and arrangements instead of writing songs and how
much time is spent in doing something original just for the sake of
originality.
I am very much with what the author says. I do not see a problem with
anyone using another composer's melody. In fact, isn't this is what
composers write songs for, so that people can play and sing them?

Indeed, economical thinking has distorted perception of art greatly with
this concept of originality.

Cheers!

Louigi.
