Law/Patents
Spanish term or phrase: INFORME SOBRE EL ESTADO DE LA TECNICA
Es un informe que tienen que hacer las agencias de patentes para determinar si el invento supone realmente o no una invención. El "estado sobre la técnica" es el conjunto de conocimientos que generalmente se tiene sobre algo, conocimiento que va variando con los años conforme se van inventando nuevas cosas.
Bernabé Rico
English translation:state of the art
Explanation:
see below the copy of the text relating to patents :
The state of the art patent search is the broadest and most general of all the patent searches. It is essentially a market survey that should ideally include a broad brush look at everything that has been done in a given art. State of the art search results are invaluable in many situations. To a client who is contemplating entry into a particular field of art, the state of the art search results can provide concrete evidence of the advisability of such a decision. To a client who is currently active in a particular field of art, the state of the art search results can lay out the path that must be followed to design around the current art.

In most cases, a thorough state of the art search can save all types of clients a great deal of time and money. Knowing what work has previously been done, what problems have been discovered and how they have been solved, who is active in the field of art, and the chronological development of their work can prevent wasteful excursions into blind alleys and unnecessary expenditures of capital.

This paper seeks to explore all facets of the state of the art search and to provide a novice searcher with the detailed information necessary to generate that search.

Report on the state of the art


Explanation:
As Telef correctly points out, this report is prepared by the patent examiners, based on their research on existing products in the field in which the subject of a patent application is intended to be used. (However, at this point the subject of the application is NOT released to the public for review or testing. That would defeat the entire purpose of the patent process.) -- The term "report on the state of the art" may also refer to the document, published along with an issued patent, known specifically as a "search report." Such a report lists the existing patents whose contents are relevant to various aspects of the patent in question, linking the claims of the current patent to the claims (and sometimes to the description in the specification portion) of the earlier patents. Search reports often accompany patents issued and published by the European Patent Office (EPO). -- Hope this helps!
