     Your item 3) states, "My computer is running GNU/Linux and is not
infected with any malware or rootkits which might allow infringement
unbeknownst to me."  If you really believe such a confidently sweeping
statement, then I certainly would choose someone else to put in charge of
computer security.  :-)  
     Consider this alternative:  "My computer is running GNU/Linux and is
therefore not affected by malware or rootkits targeting Microsoft Windows
operating systems that might allow infringement unbeknownst to me."
>also does anyone have relevant legal tips and templates for Tor operators in Canada?
     Can't help you there, I'm afraid.  I know little about Canadian law,
except that it lacks some critical constitutional protections found in the
U.S. Constitution.  (Not that that really matters here, I suppose, now that
our Constitution has been abandoned and our lawful government displaced by
the world's most powerful merger of crime syndicates.)
