What about American TOR operators?

This should hold true (no, you can't quote me on that) in any country that pratice justice on a "not guilty until otherwise proved" basis. This also includes the United States. However I would not operate a tor server in the United States myself due to the fact that people in the United States have a tradition of sueing each other for all kinds of strange stuff (like drying dogs in the microwave or burning youself on hot coffee). And believe it or not these people have also won the case in court.

 It is a book about a Spanish guy called Manual. You should read it.
