Once I run a patent search on FreePatentsOnline, and get a list of 100+ patents, how can I export these results to a file (any format is fine: csv, Excel, etc)? Google Patents offers file export of search results, but seems to miss some patents that are found in searches by FreePatentsOnline. Or if you use a web scraper tool for this, which one?

  • Perhaps use a better search site like The Lens?

  • Not to be flippant, but lens.org is really good and makes exporting extremely easy and flexible.

  • Do you find that The Lens is pretty complete in searches including recently published patents? I was happy with Google Patents until I discovered it was missing some hits that FreePatentsOnline could find.

    Lens finds everything. So will Google Patents, but you need to be careful with settings. It defaults to ignoring some patents within a patent family.

    When you search on Google Patents, you should see an option toward the top of the screen that is "Deduplicate by:" defaulted to "Family". Set this to "Publication" to get a full list.
