Hello Jan,
first, many thanks for your response and to offer your help.
Let me explain the current state regarding the abuse: since saturday i'm
in contact with a lawyer from the CCC, who provided to help me. He wrote
a letter to the lawyer's office wich accused me, appending a status from
the server descriptors for the said day of abuse. Furthermore he
appended a mail from an employee of the torproject, confirming that my
ip was running a tor-exit node. Now we are waiting for an answer from
the lawyer's office.

So far i realised: it's not enough to say 'i'm running a tor-exit node',
you must proof that a tor-node was / is running on a given ip.

On this way, many thanks and regards to CCC for the fast help!
Jan, i will write you a personal mail in correlation to this issue

Once again, sorry my bad english
