You bet me to it. IMO, this is a two fingers from Kim Dotcom to the US government, and a PR stunt to garner support from his new host country of New Zealand. 

He feels hard done-by (and he has a point). It's a PirateBay.org style campaign and will probably be resonably successful.

The best outcome possible is to point out the issues with it (as is being done), explain why they are important, and hammer those messages through in the media. Those messages will miss some people (as they will only see "free and secure"), but that's always the way.
