Since your map might not be on Blizzard's severs, (and even if it was, who cares, unless you want to be extra careful and not risk a ban but you should get a warning beforehand and you probably won't as there are too many maps to sift through), you should do the right thing and credit anything that's not yours. If any of the authors contact you to get their IP out of the map, then you must comply, legally and honourably.

Of course, I'll credit it. I just wanted to use some ambient music in my upcoming campaigns. I doubt they will notice my campaigns, and it's even more unlikely that they would contact me.
