The world needs online payment alternatives to US based Credit Cards & Paypal. Send me your suggestions and ideas: Twitter@kim.com
Rick Falkvinge and others already pointed him to Bitcoin.
Given that he has some issues with frozen funds he has a lot of incentive to see Bitcoin grow.

Make this happen.

Kim must hate the US more than anyone. Imagine if BTC/tor hidden services became the new way to pay for/access illegal downloads.

Cheap and sexy Bitcoin card/hardware wallet, buy here:

He really could throw bitcoin into the mainstream if he launches bitcoin support for his new music service.

I can't speak for everybody, but yeah I would want this. I want to be able to have my whole product chain using bitcoins, at this moment I still need to exchange to USD to pay for certain parts of it. Mainstream means more merchants, which is a good thing.

As much as I would want this, I don't think Bitcoin is ready yet. Look at how much faster the blockchain is growing with a popular service such as SatoshiDice, which only caters towards Bitcoin users. Now imagine a giant such as MegaUpload, which caters to a much much wider audience, starts using Bitcoin. The blockchain growth would be out of control. Coming up with and implementing features to keep the blockchain growth in check should be top priority right now in my opinion.

As I always say, nothing gets features implemented like the imminent catastrophe!

I don't think he was referring to megaupload themselves handling the blockchain, but everyone else who needs the blockchain dealing with it.  It seems that the rapidly increasing blockchain size is something of a major hurdle atm.
