Maybe it's something greater than law: being decent to other human beings on the planet with you and treating them fairly and ethically.
Frankly, if your fame hinges on how much you can get away with using people and doing things undercover - instead of the actual content of your work - you're not much of an artist. You're just someone who knows how to exploit others instead of doing the work yourself.
If this guy were truly creative he would have figured out how to portray Disneyland and use a consenting film crew without exploiting anyone else. Like hopping on a plane to Nara Dreamland or renting another park, and getting some eager acting school students - who would have happily CONSENTED to work for free - as extras. With a million dollar budget he could have done that. This guy is getting recognition because of how he made the film; not what's in it.
