    If an invention has been described in the prior art, a patent on that invention is not valid.Information kept secret, for instance, as a trade secret, is not usually prior art, provided that employees and others with access to the information are under a non-disclosure obligation. With such an obligation, the information is typically not regarded as prior art.

    If it's just a translation that you're looking for, then The prior art = La técnica anterior/El estado de la técnica anterior
