Advocacy

The modern English term Advocacy in the literal translation has got several different meanings, for example: defense, propaganda. As a direction of TIC, we propose to translate this term as "protection of common interests".

The main objectives of activities to protect common interests - advocacy - is to obtain a market free from over-regulation and stimulate the development of new broadcasting technologies.

The purpose of the TIC is to promote the development of television and advertising markets in Ukraine, develop draft regulatory (including regulations) on television, advertising, film production, protection of intellectual property rights and promote a balanced system of sociological research (measurements) of the television audience of Ukraine.

With broad representation in working groups and community councils at government and regulatory bodies, TICs regularly publish information on how laws and regulations affect the television industry. Through its advice, the TIC helps to ensure that public authorities listen to public opinion.
