The IIC UK Chapter holds regular invitation-only events under the Chatham House Rule, to explore in depth and among experts the topical policy, regulatory and business issues affecting the broadcasting and content, telecom and Internet sectors. Recent topics have looked at the latest debates around privacy – how new technologies developed in our sectors have revolutionised the way people can express themselves, and the understanding of what constitutes privacy in the era of the global Internet ; spectrum – a crucial resource for broadcasters and telecom operators alike, where the advent of the ‘mobile Internet’ presents incredible opportunities, but also many challenges: technical, competition, innovation; to net neutrality, where the role of the telecom operators as gatekeepers to the Internet is worrying many other actors of the converged industries, from broadcasters to Internet companies.
National Chapters play a vital role in the life of the IIC, providing an important local focus and contact point for members in their country. All members of the IIC in the country concerned are automatically members of the National Chapter.
