What will happen to Tor after the new German data retention law takes effect?

Under the proposed new data retention law which will take effect 01/2008
anonymizing services will be either banned or tor server operators will
be required to log data which would render the tor software useless as
an anonymizing tool.

Other European countries will surely follow once the law is in effect.

If all European Tor nodes stop to operate will tor still be useful only
using American and Asian nodes? Will European users be allowed to
connect to the Tor network or will that already be a criminal act?
Anybody knows?
