    The way I read this the only change is where Law Enforcement has to go to obtain a warrant.

    Must be in the jurisdiction in which the computer is located (old rule) vs. May be in any jurisdiction if the computer is sporting anonymity software. (new rule)

    I think the "headline" is purposefully inflammatory and disingenuous.

    OTOH I'm no lawyer.

    Just my opinion.

    Because Tor is what I call, Black search engine which many times is used for illegal reasons. I'm in the belief that it is monitored by law enforcement even more than other search engines.
    I believe that law enforcement can monitor and trace things when Tor is being used. They just don't publicize that fact.

    Nothing I can prove, just my thoughts.

    Tor will never be on one of my system.

    TOR was created, funded and most nodes are still operated by US government, but it is OK to use for a basic privacy.
