While I am not currently operating an exit node this only makes me want to try again. I would certainly tell the court to stuff it. Just because a Montblanc pen is used to write a bankrobbery note on Southworth paper both of which were purchased from Smith's Stationary, in no way makes Montblac, Southworth, or Smith's Stationary the least bit responsible for the bank robbery. This ruling is a clear lack of understanding of how the Internet and Tor work. I believe that other court cases have gone a more reasonable direction, and said that the node operator had no responsibility for the traffic that was delivered.

There are little details on this case:

Does the Tor project has a defense support fund or a list of committed  
pro bono lawyers in different countries for such cases?
