IRC is standardized, see RFC 1459, 2810, 2811, 2812 and 2813.
Nobody forces you to use non-free mIRC, there are other free clients available,
for example X-Chat (see http://www.xchat.org).
I don't know any real provider blocking IRC, additionally there's the
possibility to use a CGI client (CGI::IRC, in fact this means going
to a website and chat...).
