Patent Search and Report Generator by Dr. Petr Lesny | Patent data fetching, analyzing and report generation tool

Patent Search and Report Generator is a patent tool for retrieval and analysis of patent documents (patents and applications) using the Open Patent Services of EPO and USPTO. The software is written by Dr. Petr Lesny and available as shareware.

The best part is you get couple of free runs (I am not sure how many I just tried it once). The search interface is good. The results page helps you to get a quick overview of the identified documents.

The report generated by this tool can be accessed here. Looking at the report one things is clear that if you are conducting a search, your report must be atleast better than this report (considering its automated).

If you decide to try it out, the author has provided a detailed tutorial here.
