Yes, it happened to me now as well - Yesterday i got raided for someone sharing child pornography over one of my Tor exits. I'm good so far, not in jail, but all my computers and hardware have been confiscated. (20 computers, 100TB+ storage, My Tablets/Consoles/Phones)
If convicted i could face up to 10 years in jail (min. 6 years), of course i do not want that and i also want to try to set a legal base for running Tor exit nodes in Austria or even the EU.
Sadly we have nothing like the EFF here that could help me in this case by legal assistance, so i'm on my own and require a good lawyer. Thus i'm accepting donations for my legal expenses which i expect to be around 5000-10000 EUR. If you can i would appreciate if you could donate a bit (every amount helps, even the smallest) either by PayPal (any currency is ok):
My PayPal was limited - Please consider using Bitcoin or Bank transfer (or contact me for other methods) - i expect it to work again tommorow (Friday). removed
Or by Bank Transfer (EUR only please):
Or BitCoin: 1CPKAMtD4bcLrh8SRHfSxBBMmQQ5cqahPZ
I will try to pay them back when i'm out of this (or even before) but i can obviously not guarantee this, please keep this in mind. This money will only be used for legal expenses related to this case.
If you have any questions or want to donate by another way (MoneyBookers, Webmoney, Bitcoin, Liberty Reserve, Neteller) feel free to send me a mail ([email protected]) or a PM, or contact me in LET IRC.
