I'd like to propose a service with bots to record group chat. Is it ok with the TOS ? Disclaim need?

Considering that logging chat (including IM/group) to textfile is a feature of the viewer, I can't see any issue with recording that chat 24/7 for personal use. Anyone idling in the group IM is effectively doing the same. I don't even think you'd need a disclaimer (though those on the worryful side may appreciate it!). If the chat's being logged to another system, such as a personal website or being copied into Notecards for distribution in-world, you may run into ToS hurdles. =]

Firstly I would say WTG to you for asking before releasing a product that you are aware may be controversial.

I would suggest that you go to the User Group meeting today at 12pm SLT & ask Andrew Linden, if anyone will know the answer he will. Details of the group and meeting location can be found on https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Server/Sim/Scripting_User_Group

IANAL, etc., but I would think that language in the group description would be completely irrelevant to whether it was permitted or not.  My hunch is that this could only work with closed-enrollment groups where the member submitted a formal consent to have their chat monitored prior to being sent an invitation to the group, and that  those consent agreements would have to be retained.  Of course, such a group-invitation process would surely obviate much need for any logging service in the first place.
