Why do you think you will get a visit from the police
if you're running a server in a colo? The ISP will bend
over backwards to give them a root console.

Now what would be interesting is whether they will
tap the line for traffic analysis, or install a rootkit
(latter's too risky, probably).

You could try forming a Ltd.
It's reasonably cheap and quick in Germany.
