The costumed characters on New York Times Square who make a living posing for photos while dressed as American pop culture icons are typically illegal aliens.

Over the past month, many of these costumed characters, such as Spider-Man, Iron Man and Elmo, were arrested by police for disorderly conduct, bringing to light that the trade is filled with illegal aliens who want to use government regulation and union organization to limit their competition while also claiming they are not actually engaged in business.

In turn, Hollywood gives them a pass for copyright violations while also demanding tighter Internet regulations for American citizens in the name of copyright infringement.
