7. Damien Hirst, Emms V. Hirst
Hirst was sued for breach of copyright over his sculpture Hymm in 2000. The subject was a ‘Young Scientist Anatomy Set’ belonging to his son Connor, 10,000 of which are sold a year by Hull (Emms) Toy Manufacturer. Hirst created a 20-foot, six ton enlargement of the Science Set figure, radically changing the perception of the object. The artist paid an undisclosed sum to two charities, Children Nationwide and the Toy Trust in an out-of-court settlement.
