Kim Dotcom's lawyer has told the Supreme Court cinema warnings over copyright infringement are "propaganda" because there is only limited criminal liability in New Zealand.

"That little promo at the start of the movie is nothing more than propaganda or scare tactics to make you think it was theft," he said.

Instead, Ron Mansfield described a legal environment in New Zealand which was deliberately permissive to allow internet service providers to flourish.

The argument is important because the United States needs to show the actions of those involved in Megaupload would have broken New Zealand law to make a successful case for extradition.
