I want to run a Tor relay node from my house in the United States. What, if any, legal considerations should I be concerned about?

I have read the EFF's legal FAQ
on the Tor site, but it is two years old and a lot of new shit has come to light since then. I want to do this as a small way to protest NSA surveillance of the internet but do not want to expose myself to prosecution.
Note that I am not thinking of running an exit node, just a relay node. I live in Cambridge, Massachusetts, if that is relevant, and my ISP is Comcast.
