This is an Exit Node server for the Tor Anonymity Network, which is dedicated to providing privacy to people who need it most: average computer users
It is operated by Privex Inc. - a privacy focused hosting provider
In terms of applicable law, the best way to understand Tor is to consider it a network of routers operating as common carriers, much like the Internet backbone. However, unlike the Internet backbone routers, Tor routers explicitly do not contain identifiable routing information about the source of a packet.
As such, there is little the operator of this router can do to help you track the connection further. This router maintains no logs of any of the Tor traffic, so there is little that can be done to trace either legitimate or illegitimate traffic (or to filter one from the other). Attempts to seize this router will accomplish nothing.
If you are a representative of a company who feels that this router is being used to violate the DMCA, please be aware that this machine does not host or contain any illegal content. Also be aware that network infrastructure maintainers are not liable for the type of content that passes over theirequipment, in accordance with DMCA "safe harbor" provisions. In other words, you will have just as much luck sending a takedown notice to the Internet backbone providers. Please consult EFF's prepared response for more information on this matter.

You also have the option of blocking this IP address and others on the Tor network if you so desire.
The Tor project provides a python script to extract all IP addresses of Tor exit nodes. There's also an official DNSRBL available to determine if a given IP address is actually a Tor exit server.
Please be considerate when using these options. It would be unfortunate to deny all Tor users access to your site indefinitely simply because of a few bad apples.
