Ban (Law)

A ban is, generally, any decree that prohibits something. bans are formed for the prohibition of activities within a certain political territory. some see this as a negative act (equating it to a form of censorship or discrimination) and others see it as maintaining the "status quo". bans in commerce are referred to as embargos.
