Let's say I'm using Tor in order to anonymize my traffic, but only for privacy sake. I'm not torrenting, cracking or don't illegal things (of course).
Now let's say that a very famous hacker or trafficker or even pedophile who is hunted by the cyber police is using Tor as well. And sadly, I'm the last relay, so sites that the criminal visits logs my IP. Then the police gets this IP (so mine). What would happen?
- I'm arrested. But what then? I'm "clean".
- I'm arrested as a partner in crime. But Tor usage isn't illegal, is it?
- I'm freed because it wasn't me. I just said that I was using Tor. But they have no way to check the truth of that, huh? So supposedly if the criminal didn't used Tor, he could have said to the police when he get caught that it wasn't him, he was using Tor (even if he didn't) and the relay did it.
PS: what about minor crimes such as pirating movies?
