    When you produce a press release for example about a piece of research that you have done or a new release of a book or a film you might set an embargo date. That means that people aren't meant to quote from the material until that time has passed.

    Looking for embargo in the dictionary and on the forum I can't find this sense of the word. How would you say it?

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions and help

    All the best

    la expresión "periodo de carencia" creo que puede adaptarse a lo que preguntas.

    Se me ocurre que también podría utilizarse la expresión "salvaguarda" o "cláusula de salvaguarda"
