Some contradictions in the recommendations of the committee:

Take a look on page 6 and 7 (in german, translation of the sentences below).

"Zum anderen ist die Zugänglichmachung jedes
internetbasierten Angebots, das auf die Begehung jeglicher
Straftaten gerichtet ist, gleichermaßen strafwürdig."

"Second, the availability of each
Internet-based offer, based on the commission of any
Criminal offenses is equally punishable."

"Betreiber, deren Angebote ohne entsprechende Zielrichtung zur Förderung
von Straftaten genutzt
werden, vom Tatbestand ausgenommen. "

"Operators whose offers are used without appropriate target direction
for the promotion of criminal offenses
be excluded from the facts."


I think that's the first step to forbid Tor. The text indicates
operators. Is my relay abroad illegal because I'm German?
Referenced to § 129 StGB in the text: reference is made to membership in
a criminal organization. The Tor project will then be declared as such.
